He was denied his pro card due to the newer guidelines.
No Pro Card for Roman Fritz
New rule change for the professional status
After Roman Fritz at the Arnold Amateur in spring won bronze, and finally the men's overall victory in the German Championship won, saw his career planning actually the Pro Card and start at the FIBO Pro or Pro Prague in 2014 before.
Through his medal place the Pro Card seemed himself to be just a formality, the IFBB but which had in 2011 rules amended accordingly , that only medal places entitle at a Continental or World Championships or at the Arnold Amateur competition for the Pro Card.
Why do we only quite economical pro cards distributed in the rest of the world, while eg. alone at the Nationals in the U.S. are Pro Cards awarded 60, the IFBB President Dr. Rafael Santonja told us personally in the interview , when we interviewed him last spring to control then current Pro Card.
The desire of Roman Fritz after the Pro Card He was denied his request now submitted, however.
Apparently that has the 2011 scheme changed again and his third place finish at the Arnold Amateur is now no longer sufficient. Although he also has are his world overall title as a junior in the book - the title was enough for his time Daniel Hill to allow the Pro status - however, the more career just this Daniel Hill perhaps reason enough for the IFBB, this is a one-time process be left in the IFBB history.
"The IFBB is of the view that the logical continuation of the junior class is the men's class of amateurs, not the Pro status," say it to from the IFBB Headquarters.
The DBFV was the rule change so far unknown, however, managing director Guido Falk and DBFV President Erich Janner best endeavors have been used for novel - but not with the corresponding result.
The new scheme for the Pro Card
The new system provides for the Pro Card only for the overall winner of the Arnold Amateur competitions and the Olympics before, and for the TOP 3 in the men's overall winner piercing the World Cup. The change apparently exists already for at least one year ...
What has been the Pro Card, you can read here (but still with the old qualification rules).
For Roman Fritz means that he must again make a run in the amateurs, to secure the Pro Card.

... IFBB should REALLY think about US system of GIVING PRO CARDS FOR FREE and discrimination of rest of the world... it's disgusting.
They want sport bigger but only NPC has new pros now. It's insane...

Roman posted a vlog about the situation:
A quick update video to clear up all the rumors that have been going around about me not getting my pro card.
In short: The IFBB has changed the qualification standards for the 2014 contest season for european athletes. Only Overall winners at international amateur shows, such as the Arnold Classic, Mr. Olympia, World Championships etc., may obtain an IFBB Pro Card. This means that my Top 3 placing at the Arnold ´13 and my overall national german title aren´t enough anymore.
I´m not going to complain, cry, or be angry about that. I´ll get back into the gym and reclaim what has almost been mine. IFBB PRO STATUS!
My first attempt will take place at the Amateur MR. O in Prague, Czech Republik in June 2014...

I'm sorry guys but it's a fu***g shame that at the Nationals they receive Pro Cards like Smarties and in Europe we have to fight like hell to get our Pro Card. C'mon the rules must change. There are tons of bad Pros in the USA while we have a lot of quality guys around here. Just my two cents
