This year’s IFMA Muaythai University World Cup, under FISU patronage, has been a highly successful event, which was made possible through the cooperation of all the IFMA National Federations, organizers and all stakeholders involved.
The adage “A picture is worth a thousand words,” is well known and we are all familiar as to how a simple picture can convey complex ideas and emotions to the audience. We’ll leave you with images from the final night of fights, courtesy of ZRS Gamboa Photography. Thank you once again to all the participants, coaches and officials for competing and working together to bring the cultural art and sport of Muaythai to the highest sporting recognition.
In IFMA tradition, an important function and party was held for all the athletes, officials, and volunteers to come together in friendship as there are no losers in Muaythai. The party was hosted by IFMA President Dr Sakchye Tapsuwan and the Director General of the Department of Physical Education of Thailand, Dr Patanachart Kridiborworn in a grand ball room with great entertainment, smiling faces all around, and athletes mingling together. Friendship is the most important part of the sport. In Muaythai, we never look down on anyone, only to help people back on their feet.
As in every IFMA events, outstanding awards were given at the closing of the 2015 IFMA Muaythai University World Cup, under patronage of FISU. This time, the honour of handing out awards went to the FISU Director of World University Championships, Paulo Ferreira, Director General of the Department of Physical Education of Thailand, Dr Patanachart Kridiborworn, and IFMA President, Dr Sakchye Tapsuwan.
