The President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow announced the AIMAG 2017 closed at a spectacular ceremony which concluded amazing event full of bright moments and memorable time for athletes, officials, NOCs, governments, and everyone who visited Ashgabat from 17 to 27 September.

Same as at the opening both President Berdimuhamedow and Olympic Council of Asia President Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah addressed the 45,000 Olympic Stadium.


The theme of the ceremony was “Wondrous Wind”, and truly Turkmenistan revealed itself to Asia and the entire world as a wonderful and hospitable country. Each muaythai athlete, official, and IFMA staff could only applaud to the organising committee, and compliments should go to the competition manager for muaythai Mr. Scott Novak, and IFMA technical delegate Dmitry Putilin who spent months of preparation to make the competition a great success.
IFMA would like to thank Ashgabad for this outstanding event, and the entire muaythai family is looking forward to come back to the Ashgabat Olympic Village as it has it all to host sporting events of the highest caliber.
