Sami Kiblawi needs no introduction in the world of muaythai as the President of the Lebanese Muaythai Federation, Asian Vice President, IFMA Executive Board member and one of the driving forces in the muaythai family.

With recognition of muaythai within the Olympic movement, many Olympic Committees now have IFMA Executives in their own Executive Committee. This weekend was the election for the Executive of the Olympic Committee of Lebanon and Mr Kiblawi received 26 out of 28 votes earning him the vice-president position.

The IFMA family would like to congratulate Sami and have no doubt that Mr Kiblawi will continue to be an instrumental part within the Lebanese muaythai family both on the national and international level.
