Almaty, Kazakhstan October 3rd, 2017: Today, the International Functional Fitness Federation (iF3) announced its recognition of Республиканская Федерация Функционального Многоборья as the national governing body for competitive functional fitness in Kazakhstan.

Alexandr Obleuhov, President of the Kazakh Federation, stated, “The development of sport in the country and indeed in the whole world is very important, and we are excited to be a part of the development of functional fitness as a sport.”

“We are working very hard to develop strong athletes in Kazakhstan who will be ready to compete on the international stage and at the World Championships next season.”
