Boxing Qualification to Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympic Games



Recommended Posts

IOC should have declared that if a sport is unable to properly conduct qualifiers to ensure that the best athletes will qualify, those events in question should be removed from the Tokyo program. You can bet that they would find a way to organize this qualifier in that case. It's easy to do this bullshit when there aren't any consequences for the people who make the calls.

To take a break from the virus talk, here is a quick summary for the Asian countries so far, compared to 2016.   Of course they can add quotas from the world qualifier.   Nation

OK, now I am really in favour of cancelling the Games. The IOC is making such a farse.

We have host and dates for Olympic qualification events (https://www.coni.it/it/news/primo-piano/16488-pugilato,-scelte-le-città-dei-5-eventi-di-qualificazione-olimpica-torneo-europeo-a-marzo-a-londra

As I said, our two "qualified" women won't compete, they only have those privileged places because they won medals in Lima, which was million years ago. This decision would be fair in many other sports which have functional IFs and stablished calendar of competitions, but not in the mess that has been AIBA last few years.

Another thing to consider with the ranking, and I could be wrong here but, is that athletes didn’t really know in advance that these events could have an impact on Olympic qualification.

They don't know at all. Since BTF takeover the qualification process, no one thought AIBA events are important. China sent an almost amateur team to 2019 WCH which means it's impossible for a boxer attended both 2017 WCH and 2019 WCH. The worst part is not ranking system, the worst part is that every other sport is resuming qualifiers but BTF just cancel them easily, not postponement not relocation, just cancelation. It doesn't recognize the effort boxers made during past two years. It just want to fill in the entry form with some random names and it gets job done.

the real problem is that BTF did nothing to change the system...

 

olympic boxing is still heavily corrupted...at the qualifiers held so far we've seen the usual shameful judging as ever...sometimes they only changed the favoured Nations, sometimes it's the same old story...

 

this farce named olympic boxing has nothing to do with any sport and should be thrown out of the Games immediately (actually, it should have been done many, many years ago)...:pope:
