Igor Duca 10-11 years division went through three strong competitors from Lebanon, Australia, and again Moldova was stronger than Thailand in the final bout with Igor winning all three rounds.

Gheorghe Plesca, David Chiperi, Marius Covali showed amazing bouts going all the way to finals and missing little to win gold medals for their team. 

At the EMF Antalya Cup Moldovan youth also won 4 gold medals which was a true statement that in a couple of years Europe will have another power in muaythai to compete for medals.
