Pernilla Johannson needs no introduction in the world of female Muaythai. She made her way up through the ranks from the Swedish, to the Nordic, to IFMA and WMC World Champion. After her impressive career and outstanding accomplishments in the ring, Pernilla continued her journey in the sport at the Swedish Muaythai Federation and began work in her social involvement through Frysbox. She also became the Chairwoman of the IFMA Youth Commission, and was the winner of the 2014 Spirit of Muaythai award for her outstanding contribution to Muaythai and the community.

Following in the footsteps of female presidents like New Zealand, Kirgizstan, USA, and Portugal, another woman has taken the helm of a National Federation. On behalf of the remaining 129 member federations, we would like to congratulate Pernilla on her election, and we are looking forward to work with her, not only in the youth commission, but also as the president of the Swedish Muaythai Federation.
