The world sport community once again praised IFMA and Muaythai for their overall development and effort towards full gender equality which has been again, showcased at the European Games with equal number of female and male competitors. 

The Director General of IFMA, Charissa Tynan, stated, “This is not an overnight success. It has been in development for 30 years and it was at the World Championships in Mexico in 2018 that IFMA reached full gender equality. Now at all major events, regardless of the World Games, European Games, World Combat Games, there will be as many female and male competitors in the competition. 

This is very much the spirit of the European Games in which the slogan is “We Are Unity” and that very much reflects the IFMA philosophy of one family standing together.
