Nili Block needs no introduction in the world of muaythai as she is one of the most outstanding female athletes in the world known for her skills, endurance and sportsmanship.
Every year the Israeli association of non Olympic sports gives out the highest awards for athletes which could not participate in the Olympic games but nevertheless brought pride and honour to Israel and themselves.
Nili was one of the athletes nominated for her success at the European and International level bringing home some of the highest medals and recognition. She is also actively engaged in social campaigns for kids and females, dedicating her free time and efforts to promote muaythai values – honour, respect, tradition, excellence, and fair play.
She received a standing ovation from all athletes present when her name was called out as this year’s winner, a true ambassador of sport in and out of the field of play.
It has been an outstanding year for IFMA athletes; Yuri Varats from Belarus, Dakota Ditcheva from the UK, Sofia Olofsson from Sweden, Igor Lubchenko from Ukraine have all received the honour of sportsperson of the year in their respective countries and know Nili joins this rank of outstanding athlete.
IFMA Congratulates you and we are proud of you!
