AIBA Confirm Qualification Process for Rio 2016
by Michael O'Neill
February 7, 2014
     
   
   


 

(FEB 7) The 'amateur' sport's governing body ,International Boxing Association (AIBA) has just announced the qualification process for the XXXI Olympiad in Rio 2016.  As we already know sadly there will only be the same three weights for women as in London 2012. That said be sure that the WBAN Campaign for Equality will continue apace.

Fly (48-51kg)
Light (57-60kg)
Middle (69-75kg)

Again the process is a complicated one so let's take it 'step by step':

Total Quota Places for Boxing: 286
Qualification Places: Men 240 Women 32
Tripartite Commission Invitation Places : Men 5 Women 3
Host Country Places: Men 5 Women 1

Total: Men 250 Women 36
Grand Totals: 286

Which then are the qualifying events then for women?

Basically the 2016 AIBA World Championships will have 4 qualifiers per weight with the balance made up of those who qualify via their Continental Championships though numbers will depend on which Continent and also the Americas will have either 1 or 2 athletes depending on whether or not host country Brazil use one of their host nation invitations. The remaining places (3) will be announced by the Tripartite Commission late June/early July 2016.

An additional note reads:

WOMEN

- If an allocated quota place is not confirmed or is declined by the NOC within the deadline after the 2016 AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships, the unused quota place will be reallocated to the
next best ranked boxer, not yet qualified, in the same weight category at the 2016 AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships.

- If an allocated quota place is not confirmed or is declined by the NOC within the deadline after the AIBA Women’s Continental Olympic Qualifying Competitions, the unused quota place will be
reallocated to the next best ranked boxer, not yet qualified, in the same weight category at the respective AIBA Women’s Continental Olympic Qualifying Competition.

The full document on the men's qualification system also - the above is but a brief summary from the 10 page document outlining the full terms and conditions on the AIBA website: Aiba.org
