Historical & Significant Achievement of WAKO INDIA Kickboxing Team in the WAKO Cadets & Juniors World Championship held at Jesolo, Lido, Venice, Italy during 15-23 September, 2018.

We are delighted and thrilled to share the historical and significant achievement of “WAKO INDIA Under 18 Kickboxers” during the subject Championship recently concluded in Italy. Our young Kickboxers from the State Telangana bagged 2 Gold and 1 Bronze Medals and made all of us proud at the venue. Their astounding performances not only brought laurels to our Mother Land but also enabled our National Tri Colour Flag flutter with National Anthem twice during the Medal ceremony.

Name Events Medals
Ms. Chandana Pendam Girls – Musical Forms – SS/SSW 2 Gold Medals
Ms. Mythri Upunthala Girls – Musical Forms – SS 1 Bronze Medal

We have been participating in almost all the International Championships and winning medals for the country but this is the first time ever in the history of 25 years that our young Kickboxers could lay their hands on to Medals in “World Championships” where there was a participation of Kickboxers from 65 countries. This is a special, remarkable and unforgettable moment to all the Team Members and for the Country as well. It is a coincidence that our Team stood at 25th position in the medal tally on our completion of 25 years in Kickboxing. What a glittering and stupendous gift to us on our Silver Jubilee occasion.

We are proud to inform you that our young Kickboxers have attained a level that they can compete with World Champions and create a history. We hope this achievement will set an example for other Kickboxers in the country and act as an inspiration in the years to come.

The final list of medal tally is attached for your kind perusal.

It will be our endeavor to bring more and more laurels to our Mother Land – INDIA and make each citizen proud.

Thanking you,
Yours truly,
For WAKO INDIA KICKBOXING FEDERATION
