Last weekend Afghanistan saw its biggest event ever with
participants joining and competing at their national event without leaving
Afghanistan Virtual Championships 2020 entered the sports
history books as the fist event held through internet. Hundreds and hundreds of
participants across genders and ages registered to perform their skills in four
competitions: Shadow Box, Wai Kru, Max Fit, and Aero Fit.
Afghanistan has been one of the most active muaythai
federations in the Middle East to empower women through sport and the first
virtual championships set the first record with the number of female athletes by
far exceeding males.
Two months away from the World Championships many countries
around the world adopt the new format of competition which open opportunity to
compete to so many people who before could not find their way to the physical
field of play for various reasons.
Virtual Championships become a strong trend all over the
world, and next up is Peru taking us to the American continent for their qualification
for the IFMA World Virtual Championships.
