Turkmenistan has previously hosted several international competitions: the V Asian Martial Arts Games, the Amul-Khazar 2018 International Rally, and the 2018 World Weightlifting Championship. These events have stimulated interest in the country on the part of the global sports community.
Today, in the post-pandemic era, Turkmen sports teams are increasing their presence in the international arena and showing brilliant results.
At the weightlifting championship in Tashkent, some Turkmen athletes became vice-champions of Asia. The Turkmen team showed excellent results at the Silk Road Rally 2022. At the VII International Sports Games "Children of Asia" and the V Islamic Solidarity Games, athletes also showed themselves on the best side, winning many awards. Turkmen athletes achieved high results at the Open European Judo Championship and Karate-do competition in Berlin.
In the spring of this year, Turkmenistan created an Organizing Committee to prepare the national team for the 2024 Olympics.
