Six international Federations including ones specializing in Muay-Thai, Kickboxing, and Sambo have been recommended for full International Olympic Committee (IOC) recognition by The Executive Board (EB) of IOC.
The federations which are recommended are given below.
“After the provisional recognition period, these IFs demonstrated that they fulfilled all the requested criteria. Their statutes, practice, and activities conform with the Olympic Charter, and they have adopted and implemented the World Anti-Doping Code and the Olympic Movement Code on the Prevention of Manipulation of Competitions.
Furthermore, they all maintain their independence and autonomy in the governance of their sport and meet the criteria outlined in the recognition procedure for summer and winter sports,” the Olympics.com website noted.
The decision on the recognition will be made at the IOC Session, which will meet in Tokyo ahead of the Olympic Games.
