Muaythai made its debut at the European Games 2023 in Poland, and it was undeniably an athletes’ event. The IFMA athletes praised this event for the professionalism, the efficient coordination from arrival to departure, and many athletes see this event not only as a once in a lifetime experience, but a defining moment in their careers.
The athletes praise the EOC, the LOC and IFMA for the perfect balance between on and off the field experience, where being part of the Games was key. For some it was the first time they had been part of the Official National Olympic team, not just for muaythai, but for all participating sports. The athletes say “thank you” for having been part of this incredible experience and further thank the European Olympic committee for including muaythai, and IFMA and EMF for going far and beyond to ensure that each athlete had unforgettable memories of European Olympic Games 2023.
