A special occasion took place in the Kingdom of Thailand where an IOC delegation of more than 40 people visited the kingdom of Thailand led by the IOC President Doctor Thomas Bach.

Many important meetings took place including the Prime Minister of Thailand, President Prayut Chanocha, President of the Olympic Committee of Thailand, Prawit Wongsuwan, IOC member Khun Ying Patama Leeswadtrakul, the Sport Minister of Thailand, Weerasak Kowsurat and many others.

It was certainly also a really great opportunity for IFMA to meet the IOC President, Doctor Sakchye Tapsuwan had an opportunity together with IFMA Sport’s Director Charissa Tynan to express their thank you to the IOC and IOC Executive Board for the recognition of Muaythai and IFMA by the IOC.

The IOC President is no stranger to Muaythai himself an Olympic gold medal winner, he is showing off his kicking skills in his visit to Bangkok and previously was a guest of honour at a Muaythai event invited by IFMA.
