AIBA Commissions meet in Lausanne06 October 2016
The AIBA Referees & Judges and Technical & Rules Commissions convened in Lausanne, Switzerland from 3-5 October, to reflect upon the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and plan affirmative actions to build on during the new Olympic cycle. Several crucial recommendations were made in the areas of referees and judges, the education of boxers and coaches, and improving the dialogue with National Federations, with the meetings marking a positive new horizon for AIBA and the boxing world.
“Rio 2016 was a watershed moment for AIBA,” said President Dr Ching-Kuo Wu. “Boxing was in the spotlight for positive reasons, but occasionally also for the wrong ones. As an organisation, we have pulled together and I am extremely happy with the work that has been done this week by highly experienced members of our commissions, whose expertise and council will allow AIBA and its community to develop further throughout this next Olympic cycle.”
