Fair Play is an important part in muaythai on all levels and IFMA stands united against doping.
Prevention is the cure and IFMA for years has done work on all levels to ensure that there is zero tolerance for doping and cheaters.
There is a saying that we rather fail in honour then win in dishonesty, and it is an ever going battle but the IFMA World Championships 2016 in Sweden proved another success in the fight against doping as all test results have been negative and that is truly positive result for our sport.
We must continue to do our best to promote clean sport, clean athletes to ensure fair play and credibility.
