Great job for WAKO done in Turkey

Kickboxing has been elected as a member association of the International World Games Association (IWGA) following a vote at the general annual meeting.

WORLD-GamesWith all 36 member associations present at the meeting, the World Association of Kickboxing Organisations (WAKO) received 26 votes to become officially recognised as a member of IWGA.

The International Pentathlon Union (UIPM) and International Wushu Federation Amateur (IWUF), who also applied for membership, failed to receive the necessary number of votes to gain acceptance as an IWGA member federation at this meeting held in conjunction with the SportAccord International Convention.

Although an official member federation, WAKO does not gain automatic qualification onto the World Games sports programme . We need to apply for full inclusion on this programme.

But, good job have been already done because WAKO will be a part of the invitational programme in the next Games in Worclaw in 2017.

Next step in WAKO is to to strengthen our application to be an official sport inside the programme at the next Games and to apply for the IOC recognition.

Next edition of the World Games will take place in Wroclaw, Poland, 2017.
