H.E. Andrii Beshta was known for his love for sport and muaythai. He has been a strong supporter of using sport towards creating positive change and he has been supporting not only the Ukrainian national team and athletes when competing in Thailand but also his presence and support for IFMA’s social projects was greatly appreciated and will be missed. He was on hand to witness and support IFMA when the IOC granted provisional recognition in 2016 and attended all IFMA’s major events during his ambassadorship in Bangkok such as the IFMA Senior and Youth World Championships, King’s Cup Gala and many others.
He was known to us for his outgoing personality, his spirit and passion for sport and diplomacy. He is survived by his wife and three children. We send our condolences and prayers to his family and those whose lives he touched are in our thoughts and prayers.
