Somrak Khamsing Muaythai Ambassador for SportAccord World Combat Games 2013

Somrak needs no introduction to the fighting world: renowned Muaythai practitioner; Olympic gold medallist; movie star; and TV presenter.

He began his Muaythai training at the age of 7, and throughout his fighting career has won multiple Muaythai championships. He is now rightfully regarded as one of the greatest Muaythai fighters of all time.

 

Somrak was the first Thai National to win a gold medal during 1996 Summer Olympic Games, where he competed as an amateur boxer in the Featherweight category. He further represented Thailand in 1998 in the Asian Games, and in 2000 and 2004 Summer Olympics.

 

His outstanding personality and martial arts skills gave a boost to his film career: he has appeared in a number of films, including Jet Li’s Fearless (2006). In the same year he made his debut as a singer.

 

Somrak, as a true fighter and Muaythai martial artist, is a perfect fit for the sport ambassador for the 2013 World Combat Games.
