Two athletes from the Turkmenistan muaythai team became true national heroes after defeating Thai athletes in the final.
It’s remarkable that a female Jennet Aynazarowa in 57 kg division and male Mustapha Saparmyradow in 67 kg won gold medals showing progress in both male and female muaythai in Turkmenistan. The crowd was on their feet when the names were announced to be the winners and both Jennet, and Mustapha were over the top with pride when the Turmenistan flag was flying high at the Muaythai Arena of the Olympic village.
It was a true success for the entire team, coach, and the team entourage. There will be many battles ahead; FISU University Championships, World Championships, but these victories will stay in history of IFMA and Turkmenistan sport forever.
