European Boxers got more than half medals during the Albena 2013 AIBA Women's J/Y World Boxing Champs06 October 2013
The European Boxing Teams, who took part in the 2013 edition of AIBA Women’s Junior/Youth World Boxing Champs held in the bulgarian city of Albena, did their best inside the Ring of the Albena Resort.
The boxers, coming from the Old Continent, got 55 medals out of 92, which means that more than half of all medals were won by European Athletes. As far as the Youth Tournament is concerned, our Boxers got 30 medals out of 52 (Gold: 9; Silver: 6; Bronze: 15). Concerning the Junior Competition, 25 out of 40 medals were taken by European Fighters (Gold: 6; Silver: 6; Bronze 16).
“With great pleasure – Stated the EUBC President Franco Falcinelli – that I would like to congratulate the young European women who have proudly represented their countries and our continent in the AIBA Junior & Youth Women’s World Championships. The results are above and beyond our expectations, with a total of 55 medalists out of 92 worldwide, meaning that European women’s boxing movement is successfully growing in quality and quantity. This is due to the great investment that National Federations have made in women’s boxing, especially with the up and coming generation that will solidify Olympic Women’s and Elite international events. In closing, I would like to formally thank the Bulgarian Boxing Federation for their immense effort to ensure that the organization was outstanding.”
