Tizenhárom korosztályos Eb-érmes szerepel a junior országos bajnokságon

A junior magyar bajnokságra
Debrecenben kerül sor az elkövetkező napokban, amely az idei esztendő első
országos megmérettetése lesz. A junior lányok között hat olyan ökölvívónk is szerepel,
akik az elmúlt két év serdülő-, valamint a tavalyi junior Európa-bajnokságon
éremmel zártak. A fiúknál hét versenyző nyert érmeket a korábbi serdülő
Európa-bajnokságokon, köztük Buza Rafael neve kívánkozik az élre, mint a
legrutinosabb és legeredményesebb a korosztályban.

A junior országos
bajnokságon a 2004-2005-ben született versenyzők indulhatnak, a 15 és 16 éves
tehetségek közül sokan nemzetközi rutinnal is rendelkeznek. A korosztály első
idei fontos eseménye az Utánpótlás Olimpia elmaradt, de a legtöbben már
bokszolhattak 2020-ban, nem teljesen ring tapasztalat nélkül lépnek a kötelek
közé.

A tavalyi esztendőben a
junior magyar bajnokságot október 16-a és 19-e között Eger városa rendezhette
meg, és számos címvédő visszatér az eseményre. A versenyre a szabályoknak
megfelelően mérkőzésenként háromszor két perces menetekkel kerül sor, akárcsak
a nemzetközi eseményeken. A 2019-es év legjobb serdülő versenyzői közül többen
immáron a juniorok között szerepelhetnek, és erősítik a korcsoportot.

Összesen 43 junior lány és
106 fiú regisztrált a korosztályos magyar bajnokságra, amely számok nagyon
hasonlóak a 2019-es számokhoz. Annak ellenére, hogy tavasszal a legtöbb
versenyző csak odahaza tudott készülni a koronavírus járvány miatt, a klubok
alaposan kitettek magukért, és nagy csapatokkal igyekeznek részt venni a
debreceni eseményen.

A junior lányok között az 52
kilósok mezőnyében neveztek a legtöbben, kilenc ökölvívó nevezett az eseményre.
A junior fiúk között öt olyan súlycsoport is van, amelyben több, mint tíz
versenyző nevezett, a váltósúlyban (66kg) várhatóak a legnagyobb küzdelmek
Debrecenben. A hagyományoknak megfelelően a házigazda Debrecen nagy csapattal
képviselteti magát a junior országos bajnokságon, de a magyar klubranglistán az
élvonalba tartozó egyesületek is mind nagy csapattal szerepelnek az eseményen.

A junior magyar bajnokság
egyben nemcsak remek versenyzési lehetőség a korosztálynak, hanem válogató a
közelgő junior Európa-bajnokságra. A grúz főváros helyett ezúttal a bolgár
szövetség rendezheti meg a junior Eb-t beugróként, amelyre így Szófiában kerül
sor november 23-a és december 3-a között.

A korosztály elnevezése
2008. január elsejéig kadett volt, amelyet akkor a Nemzetközi Ökölvívó
Szövetség (AIBA) juniorra változtatott az Ifjúsági Olimpiai Játékok 2010-es
bevezetése miatt. A 2008 előtti junior korosztályból pedig ifjúsági lett a
magyar szakmai elnevezés alkalmazkodva a nemzetközi viszonyokhoz.

A
legjobban várt párharcok a juniorok között

Kovács Laura a tavalyi
junior Európa-bajnokságon a 46 kilósok között szerzett bronzérmet, majd a
magyar bajnokságon is a legjobbnak bizonyult, de már a 48 kilósok között. A 16
esztendős tehetség az 52 kilósok közé lépett fel idén, és a nem hivatalos
junior világranglistán jelenleg a második helyet foglalja el. Kovács Laura egy
nemzetközileg is magasan jegyzett rivális, Márton Eszter ellen harcolhatja ki a
bajnoki címet, amely a hölgyek között az egyik legjobban várt junior
összecsapás lehet.

A fiúk között a legnagyobb
összecsapás két serdülő Európa-bajnoki bronzérmes között várható az 57 kilósok
mezőnyében. Petrovics Krisztofer és Oláh Levente egyaránt harmadik helyezéssel
zárt Tbilisziben a 2019-es serdülő Európa-bajnokságon. Mindketten elsőéves
juniorok, de kiváló képességeiket most egymás ellen is bemutathatják a
debreceni junior országos bajnokságon. Kettejük párharcába a tavalyi junior
Európa-bajnokságon szereplő Cservák Zoltán is beleszólhat.

AIBA’s Interim Chief Pushes Reforms, Calls for IOC’s Support

The International Boxing Association (AIBA) is delivering real change through its reform process, according to Interim President Dr. Mohamed Moustahsane. He has called for the support of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) at this crucial time.

AIBA, which represents amateur boxing worldwide, has implemented key reforms since it was suspended by the IOC in May 2019. Despite the Covid pandemic, AIBA has strengthened its Ethics and Disciplinary Commissions that oversee governance.

Bernhard Heinrich Welten, the arbitrator at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Switzerland, will serve as Chairman of the AIBA Ethics Commission. Francois Paul Strydom, Chairman of the FIDE Ethics & Disciplinary Committees, has been confirmed as Chairman of the AIBA Disciplinary Commission.

“The AIBA family welcomes these two leading figures in sports governance. This is one more step in improving our processes. We will ensure that AIBA continues to meet international standards as a sports federation,” said Interim President Moustahsane.

AIBA has successfully conducted an Athletes Commission election, with the new Chairperson and Vice-Chairperson of the Athletes Commission joining the AIBA Executive Committee (EC) as voting members. AIBA is also extending its contract with the International Testing Agency to continue its compliance with the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).

Under Interim President Moustahsane, AIBA is updating its constitution to ensure checks and balances. Its Reform Commission worked with national federations to propose changes in the constitution, which were approved by the EC in September. The final changes will be voted on at AIBA’s next Congress on December 12-13.

The Congress will be held virtually due to the ongoing pandemic, where a new president will be elected to take the reform agenda forward.

Interim President Moustahsane called for the IOC to support AIBA’s drive to strengthen governance and transparency.

“AIBA has made great strides in the past year. We have been very attentive to the recommendations of the IOC Task Force. I hope the IOC will support us on this journey to bring in the best practices, so AIBA can return to the Olympics for Paris 2024,” he said.

Moustahsane said the IOC’s monitoring group should meet regularly with AIBA, to discuss the progress in reforms, before reporting back to the IOC. That would ensure the IOC is kept up-to-date with the latest steps being taken by AIBA.

United, we shall create the opportunity and give these youth autonomy and hope.

Over 60 organizations have joined forces to unite on the digital platform where qualification events will take place between August and the end of October. The finals will be hosted in Thailand and held as a hybrid event around the world in celebration of the United Nations’ World Children’s day, on November 20-22.

The festival will include virtual medal ceremonies, inspirational opening and closing ceremonies, and will incorporate a vital platform of education by including webinars, an opening conference, panel discussions, and workshops.

Topics of focus will include:

  • Peace through sport;
  • Inclusion and non-discrimination;
  • Athletes’ roles and responsibilities;
  • Safeguarding and child protection among others.

Over 100 youth ambassadors, together with the leaders of sport and all participating entities will make a unified call to action towards a better tomorrow.

With the finals being held on United Nations’ World Children’s Day, the former 8th UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-Moon said:

‘We all face challenges amidst the pandemic global shift. Now is the time we must think forward and we must take action towards empowering our youth towards the future. This UTS Virtual Youth Festival is a unique opportunity for the youth of all abilities to unite through the digital ecosystem in friendship, sports, health, and education. United, we must stand for youth rights ensuring equality and the inclusion of all youth. This Festival will open many new doors of opportunity for us to reach youth all over the world. Let us reach them together.’

GAISF and SportAccord President Raffaele Chiulli said:

‘GAISF and SportAccord families are proud to play an active role in the innovative United Though Sports Virtual Youth Festival 2020. The global COVID-19 pandemic has brought so many challenges, but now is the time for the international sports community to lead by example and inspire young people and their families around the world to get active. As one voice for all sport, the virtual youth festival will be a fantastic opportunity to showcase and celebrate the fundamental values of equality, diversity, and inclusion.’

‘During such unprecedented and challenging times, we must continue to create opportunities, putting the youth of the world at center stage,’ stated UTS President Stephan Fox. ‘We must also understand that for many vulnerable youths, once the pandemic ends, they will continue to live in lockdown and in challenging environments. We want to create an event that is active and educational for all our youth and regardless of who is up on the podium, the closing ceremony will see the youth of the world come together for one global celebration.’
