From 3 – 23 July, the International Boxing Association (AIBA) organized a training camp for boxers from 10 different countries in the Russian city of Khabarovsk.
Supporting National Federations and providing opportunities for their athletes is a key priority for AIBA. Following several requests from federations for additional elite level training experiences, a camp was organized by AIBA to help athletes prepare for international competitions.
‘AIBA is a home for boxers. Our main task is to help them to compete at the highest level. Because of that we organized the training camps to provide full support for our boxers’, AIBA President Umar Kremlev said.
Athletes from Algeria, Botswana, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Dominican Republic, Guyana, Jordan, Mauritius, Morocco, Trinidad and Tobago and Venezuela, spent three weeks in Khabarovsk. During this time the athletes went through a comprehensive training camp to prepare for upcoming international competitions.
