ARCHERY AND MUAYTHAI ADDED TO EUROPEAN GAMES 2023
The European Olympic Committees (EOC) has announced that archery and muaythai are the latest additions to the programme of the European Games Kraków-Małopolska 2023.
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.
“The European Games give our continent’s elite athletes in popular non-Olympic sports the chance to compete at the highest level and showcase their exceptional talents to a wider audience, said Acting President of the European Olympic Committees (EOC) Niels Nygaard. We are excited to offer a strong mix of both with the inclusion of archery and muaythai on the 2023 programme today.”
World Archery Europe (WAE) President Mario Scarzella said he appreciated the confidence the EOC has placed in archery, in particular through the introduction of mixed-team Olympic qualification and Compound archers at the 2019 European Games in Minsk.
