Message from H.R.H. Al-Wathiqu Billah Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin Ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Mahmud Al-Muktafi Billah Shah
Sultan of Terengganu
I would like to congratulate the organizers of the TAFISA World Sport for All Games, under the patronage of the IOC, in Busan, the Republic of Korea. Allow me also to extend my best wishes to all athletes in the competitions at this Games where all sports will gather together in a friendly contest to compete with each other in true Olympic spirit.
Muaythai is a sport with a proud culture and tradition, and it is one of the most participated sports in the Games. The sport of muaythai has gained world recognition with its inclusion in GAISF and has achieved further popularity through the highly viewed Contender Asia television series as it was a major hit around the world. Our beautiful country, Malaysia, has acquired the bid to host the Contender Asia – Season Two. This will be a fantastic opportunity for us to showcase to the world the beauty of Malaysia, a country filled with traditions in which all races and religions live together in peace and harmony. It is my greatest pleasure to invite all sport friends from around the world to visit our beautiful country and be part of The Contender Asia.
