Ukraine, Team Winner of Europe

Ukraine National Muaythai team, with the full support of the Sports Ministry and the National Olympic Council of Ukraine, has become the 2014 European Championship team winner. Gennady Trukhanov, President of the Ukraine Muaythai Federation, stated that team Ukraine put in a lot of youth and female work to regain the number 1 spot in Europe.

It was a hard earned win for Ukraine, as the standard of Muaythai in Europe in countries like Russia, Belarus, Sweden, France, Israel, Spain, Finland and so many others have grown exponentially in the past few years. The next important event will be the 2015 IFMA World Cup, which will also be qualification for the World Combat Games, under patronage of the IOC, and this will be a much harder battle to face when Asian, Oceania, Pan-American and African countries will join in competition.
