COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – Three of the United States’ elite female athletes will test their skills against 16 of the world’s top nations at the Feliks Stamm Tournament in Warsaw, Poland, April 6-8. 2010 USA Boxing National Championships silver medalist Tyrieshia Douglas (Baltimore, Md.), 2010 National PAL Champion Stephanie Han (El Paso, Texas) and 2009 Middleweight National Champion Alyssa DeFazio (Peoria, Ariz.) will represent Team USA in Warsaw.

The U.S. squad will face off with 16 nations from across the globe at the international event, which will showcase competitors in the three female Olympic weight divisions. The countries competing in the Feliks Stamm tournament with the United States will be: Belarus, Czech Republic, England, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Moldova, Mongolia, Ukraine, Russia, Turkey, Wales, and Poland.

Team USA will be led coaches Bruce Kawano (Pearl City, Hawaii) and Clara Savannah (Houston, Texas) with Ricky Webb (Marvel, Texas) and Dr. Ruben Tenorio (San Antonio, Texas) joining the squad as the AIBA official and Team Physician respectively.

The United States delegation has been participating in a training camp at the Polish Olympic Training Center in Cetneiwo, Poland with teams from Poland and Italy in preparation for the event. They will travel to Warsaw today prior to competition beginning tomorrow.

The event is the first international competition for the trio of women since the Women’s International Dual Series in Oxnard, Calif., in November and will provide valuable international experience for all the competitors prior to the Olympic debut of women’s boxing in 2012.
