Today over 600 young athletes saw their names entered into the draw on the IFMA Live system for the biggest IFMA Youth World Championships yet, as 82 countries gathered to celebrate youth muaythai.
Athletes and their entourage have been arriving in Bangkok for two days, all heading for the same hotel – located as close to the venue at the National Stadium as possible.
IFMA events now run on the IFMA Live online system meaning names entered online appear on the website, and can be accessed live by supporters and fans at home.
Each team sends their manager to watch and take notes at the draw, and then the schedule is published later on IFMA Live – so the day by day scores or results and list of bouts is also freely available there.
The last teams checked into the hotel, and made their medical checks to get ready for the first bouts on Saturday.
