tunisia flag

Tunisia, officially the Republic of Tunisia, is a country in the Maghreb region of North Africa. It is bordered by Algeria to the west and southwest, Libya to the southeast, and the Mediterranean Sea to the north and east; covering 163,610 km2 (63,170 sq mi), Tunisia is the smallest country in North Africa. It contains the eastern end of the Atlas Mountains and the northern reaches of the Sahara desert, with much of its remaining territory arable land. Its 1,300 km (810 mi) of coastline include the African conjunction of the western and eastern parts of the Mediterranean Basin. Tunisia’s northernmost point, Cape Angela, is also the northernmost point of Africa. Its population was 11.7 million in 2019, and the capital and largest city is Tunis, located on the northeast coast, which lends the country its name.

Tunis-Carthage international airport (IATA code: TUN • ICAO code: DTTA) serves Tunis (capital of Tunisia). Located eight kilometers north-east of Tunis, it was put into operation in 1940. The airport is named after the historic city of Carthage which is located to the east of the airport. When it was put into operation, the aerodrome was known under the name of Tunis-El Aouina. Like the vast majority of Tunisian airports, the airport is managed by the Office of Civil Aviation and Airports (OACA). The airport has also served Montreal in Canada in the north of the United States, for a few months.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: All the costs of traveling, hotel accommodations, transport from and to the airport and meals are the responsibilities of the individual athletes.

MEN’S CLASSIC PHYSIQUE

  1. Since the inception of the Men’s Classic Physique division two years ago, the standard to wear was the Black Classic Physique Shorts. Over time we’ve heard you, the competitors, with suggestions and have previously followed through by both adding another height division from three to four and increasing the allowable weights for your height in both the NPC and IFBB Professional League. Probably the suggestion we’ve heard the most though is competitors wanting to compete in more traditional posing trunks that don’t cover the top of the thighs and hamstrings. Well you wanted “Classic” and now you are going to get “Classic”! Starting January 1, 2019, ALL Men’s Classic Physique competitors, both IFBB Pro and NPC, will be competing in Classic Physique Posing Trunks! Competitors are required to wear the same type of cut and all Classic Physique Posing Trunks that are worn in competition must be black and no less than 4‐1/2 Inches on the sides/hips. See the photo examples.
