Almost 5,000 flag-waving, cheering fans witnessed the colourful Opening Ceremony of the Asian Kickboxing Confederation (WAKO Asia) Championships 2016/17 at the Martial Arts Arena in the sprawling Ashgabat Olympic Complex on Wednesday.

Toyli Komekov, Chairman of the State Sport Committee, welcomed the competing sportsmen and women to Turkmenistan before Nasser Nassiri, President of WAKO Asia, thanked the host nation for organising the tournament.

“We at WAKO Asia extend our deepest gratitude to the President of Turkmenistan for giving us such a wonderful venue for organising our competitions. We thank each and every person who assisted us in making this event a grand success. This is an historic occasion, and we’re proud to be here in this great country.”

Following the opening speeches, hundreds of dancers and musicians took centre stage. Effortlessly switching between Turkmenistan’s traditional and modern cultures, the dancers delighted the spectators and athletes while also providing a glimpse of what to expect at the Ashgabat 2017 5th Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games in September.
