Teams have arrived in Split, Croatia for the European Championships!
Representatives from 34 countries have gathered in beautiful, historic Split for this week-long event. Gripe Stadium in the centre of the city will be the focus for the athletes and their supporters.
The city is already plastered with posters and banners and people are excited to support the home team but also meet the visitors. Even at the airport, staff welcomed the muaythai people warmly.
The draw and weigh-ins took place on Saturday for male and female athletes. This is always a tense time for the athletes especially for those travelling from far away, but everyone made it on the button! The athletes are all fighting fit!
At the team manager meeting, everyone was given their timetable for the week, and practical information about transport and changing facilities at the Arena. Technical Director Dmitry Putilin answered everyone’s questions, and has been working with the Croatian team on the ground to ensure the event will run smoothly.
