Baku, March 2, AZERTAC
The European Games Kraków-Małopolska 2023 will showcase the continent’s top athletes in a range of Olympic and non-Olympic sports, including archery and muaythai, the latest additions to the programme of the third edition of Europe’s leading multisport event, according to the official website of the European Olympic Committees (EOC).
Archery will be making its third straight appearance at the European Games, while Muaythai, also known as Thai Boxing, will make its European Games debut in 2023.
Muaythai, a martial art whose origins date back over 1,000 years, is one of the fastest growing combat sports in the world in terms of athletes and spectators. The competition format for muaythai at the European Games has been designed with full gender parity in mind, and as such will feature seven male and seven female divisions plus two mixed-gender team events.
The EOC Coordination Commission for the 2023 European Games, led by Chair Hasan Arat, has been working closely with a number of European Federations to finalise their participation at Kraków-Małopolska.
