Katie Taylor appointed as new A.I.B.A. Women's Boxing Ambassador
by Michael O'Neill
December 8, 2012
     
   
   
   
   

(DEC 8) Ireland’s Olympic 60kg Gold medallist Katie Taylor has been handed a new Ambassadorial role by the International Boxing Association (AIBA).

This nomination was announced by AIBA President, Dr Ching-Kuo Wu at the 2012 AIBA Annual Awards Ceremony held in Yerevan on Friday evening where the four times World Lightweight (60kg) champion received her third ‘Best AIBA Elite Woman Boxer of the Year’ trophy.

"AIBA is extremely happy that Katie has accepted our offer to become AIBA Women's Boxing Ambassador", said Dr Wu. "She has inspired a generation of women boxers and the acceptance of women's boxing in the Olympic program has been in part a result of her outstanding achievements. She is now a role model to youngsters around the globe and we are looking forward to working closely with her in the build up to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games".

"It is an honour for me to be nominated today as an AIBA Women's Boxing Ambassador", declared Taylor. "I cannot wait to start in this role. I want to help further elevate women's boxing to ensure it sits at the pinnacle of sporting achievement".

Even by her own high standards, 2012 has been a year of magnificent achievement for the modest 26 years old from Bray, County Wicklow as this new appointment comes at the end of a year when she took not only Olympic Gold but also her fourth World Championship crown and , her third AIBA Elite Woman of the Year award and numerous honours in her native Ireland with more likely to follow before the year ends.
