The last WKF European Championship in Wels, Austria, was the expected success. Many thanks to WKF AUSTRIA President Mrs. Tanja HELML, LV. OÖ. President Andreas HELML, Alexander PLETZ and everyone who helped.

WKF Supervisor was Mr. Carlos SUAREZ from WKF Latin America

Andreas and Tanja HELML

Our thanks also go to the city of Wels, who have tirelessly promoted our European Championship. Without the many helpers, the great success in Wels would not have been possible.

Four full days of action on 2 tatami and 2 rings, total over 500 fights 28 nations have registered online in advance and, as always, some nations did not appear. It was gratifying that small teams from Italy, Croatia, the Czech Republic and Turkey found their way to Wels again. Exactly 306 men and women from 21 nations weighed in on Monday and were professionally registered by our friendly team.

TOP international WKF referees from Romania, Austria, Croatia, France, Argentina, Spain, Ukraine and Germany.

The largest team was the Austrians as hosts with 97 (!) participants from 6 federal states. As always, our friends from France provided the largest team of guests. As is well known, France is the host of the 2024 World Cup in Thionville in Alsace.
Andreas and Tanja HELML

Romania, Portugal and Spain also all had large teams. Poland also had a lot of fighters and Frenky PAWLAK held first talks with many nations in view of the 2025 European Championships in Mikolow.

Important details would be discussed at the Europa Congress in the Hotel Plaza. Also some updates in the competition rules and also forms division, valid from 01.01.2023. Another report will follow shortly.

NEWS FROM THE WORLD OF SPORTS

Posted by WKF head office on October 6th, 2022

In spring 2022, our European WKF board decided 7:1 not to exclude our Russian sports friends of WKF RUSSIA from participating in the European Championships in Wels, Austria, from October 24th to 29th.

The reason was that we are a worldwide sports federation – and not politicians!

We were also criticized for this decision!

For the same reason (!) the Olympic Boxing Association IBA has now abolished its ban on Russian AND Belarusian athletes with immediate effect.

 

 

IBA Board of Directors voted in favor to cancel its previous decision and allow boxers of Russia and Belarus to compete at the IBA events with immediate effect. The IBA strongly believes that politics shouldn’t have any influence on sports. Hence, all athletes should be given equal conditions.

Respecting its own autonomy as the international sports federation, the IBA shall remain politically neutral and independent. IBA calls for peace and remains a peacemaker in any conflicts. Moreover, the IBA has obligation to ensure equal treatment towards the athletes and competition officials, regardless of their nationality and residence.

Both Russian and Belarus teams will be able to perform under their flags, and the national anthems will be played in case they win a gold medal.

According to the decision, the technical officials of Russia and Belarus will also be back in the competitions.
