Muaythai in Australia is moving!! The National Federation Muaythai Australia (MTA) is fully recognised by the Australian Sports Commission and the Oceania Olympic Committee recently signed an MoU with the Olympic Council of Asia, so Australia athletes like in Football, can participate in future Asian regional events.
Australia has made some fantastic youth development work, and had one of the largest delegations at the last IFMA Youth World Championships. This weekend will the Australian championships in both Junior and Senior divisions on the beautiful Gold Coast and the Gold Coast is also the venue for next month’s SportAccord Convention.
Australia will see yet another major sporting event only 3 weeks from now, the Arafura Games in which muaythai is included as a full medal sport. The future of muaythai looks more than bright and we wish all the athletes good luck over the next days and weeks.
