Congratulations to Sofia Olofsson, who was named the IWGA Athlete of the Month for May 2016. On Sunday, Sofia won the gold medal (weight class 54 kg) at the IFMA Muaythai World Championships in Jönköping/Sweden.

Sofia has become one of the true ambassadors of Swedish muaythai continuing the long traditions of Swedish long class athletes. Her career has been a model for female athletes in Sweden which let Sweden win four medals; all by female athletes.

IFMA congratulats Sofia on her following distinction and thanks IWGA for this important nomination. We are looking forward to see Sofia at the World Games 2017 to again enjoy her performance in the field of play.

IFMA Sport Director Charissa Tynan personally congratulated Sofia and wished her to continue changing the world for better through sport.
