The year ends with a fantastic World Championship in Dublin, Ireland. Out of that last championship one kickboxer must be mentioned for her achievments – Tonje Sørlie.

Tonje Sørlie from Norway is a unique champion and not many fighters can show the same result – Being world champion in 3 different disciplines. The record as of now is:

v  World Champion in Light-Contact in 2003

v  World Champion in Semi-Contact and Light-Contact in 2005

v  Combat Games Champion in Full-Contact in 2010

v  World Champions in Full-Contact in 2011

v  In addition several silver in Full-Contact in previous World Championships and her gold medals in European Championships and herWorld Cup victories


She is not only winning but really fight with a big kickboxing heart which result to versatility of her performance. She has impressing movement, good punch and last but not least, she uses kicks as a weapon and perform Full-Contact like it should be practiced – combinations of arms and legs all the way.

So, let us applaud a fantastic champion, a person that uses the total variety of our WAKO kickboxing disciplines in order to improve – a really good ambassadeur of our sport. 

Also congratulations to former Full-Contact Champion Thomas Kristiansen that have made Tonje this unique.
