Similarly, the FEFF request, the Association of Valencia Fitness Bodybuilding and his immediate dismissal as President, as long as the outcome of its alleged involvement in this nasty business. The FEFF rejects and condemns any unlawful activity on the usage of performance-enhancing drugs. Furthermore, as stated in their agreements assemblies, consider a private accusation lodged against any person who, through their individual actions, would prejudice the good name and prestige of the sport of bodybuilding and the Federation. Confirmed the involvement of Mr.Martinez on the alleged plot of doping, the Federation will be reiterated its call on the need to regulate the sport from the Sports Council, since this would mean greater control over it and on the actions of its practitioners.
