EMF President Meets the Mayor of Istanbul

The EMF President Gennadiy Trukhanov who also has the important position of the Mayor of Odessa met the Mayor of Istanbul, Kadir Topbas at the opening of a new park in Odessa.


In a conversation with the EMF media department Mr. Trukhanov said that even though the meeting was dedicated to his political activity he couldn’t avoid discussing muaythai as this sport is very popular in both Turkey and Ukraine. Mr Trukhanov said that he is well aware how much Mr. Topbas supports amateur sport in Turkey, and his slogan “Support from me and success from you” is true evidence he is both a leader in sport and politics.


The upcoming World Games 2017 will have muaythai as a full medal sport and will feature both Turkish and Ukrainian athletes. The entire world will turn their attention to Wroclaw to follow athletes who will compete for the pride of their flag.
