The Chinese Taipei Muaythai Association which is fully recognised by the National Olympic Committee has invited athletes from all over Chinese Taipei to participate in the national qualifiers to determine who will represent Chinese Taipei at the upcoming IFMA World Virtual Championships, and hopefully at the United Through Sports Virtual Youth Festival 2021.
Chinese Taipei has had outstanding success at the 2020 IFMA World Virtual Championships. The government of Chinese Taipei has given full support to the upcoming 2021 National Fitness Muaythai Championships. Athletes from all over the nation are competing in five different categories: shadow box, wai kru, mai muay, max fit and aero fit.
The National Fitness Muaythai Championships set the bar low and allows more muaythai lovers to participate and feel the excitement of muaythai competitions. The total of the participants is 25% higher than last year, and the age of the athletes ranges from 10 to 56.
Not only we will see new faces showing their skills in front of a crowd, some of the 2020 Virtual Championships gold medallists such as wai kru champions Tsung-Shiu Wu and Shih-Hao Wang, shadow box champion Po-Chung Chen are also joining in again to defend their titles. The winners are qualified to advance to team TPE to compete in the 2021 IFMA World Virtual Championships, and hopefully at the United Through Sports Virtual Youth Festival 2021.
