All expressions are settled down and our athletes are now at vacations.

WAKO can be proud of the first participation as an invitational sport, looking forward to Birmingham, Alabama 2021, where we expect to take part as a regular sport in the program.

Two times during ten days of fantastic competition we had kickboxer selected as The Athlete of the Day:

Roza Gumienna was the female athlete of the first day of the competition, taking the oath on behalf of all participating athletes of the Games and after the finals of the second day of kickboxing competition, Slobodan Mijajlović, European and World Champion and the winner of The World Games received the prestigious award as a male athlete of the day.

Two days reserved to the kickboxing event in the Orbita hall in Wroclaw was full of audience, especially in the finals when the hall was full to the last seat. The atmosphere was great and feedback from live broadcasting at Olympic Chanel was great too.

The great interest of WAKO kickboxing participation at The World Games was proved in WAKO Social media, where our posts on Facebook, Instagram, and Flickr gained reach to more than 2.000.000 people which are incredible fact.

The best nation in the Medals table was Poland, second is Serbia and third is Russia.
