The first mass delivery of the new AIBA-Swiss Timing Scoring System has taken place this week with 40 federations in the first instalment.
The supply of new open scoring systems is part of AIBA’s global reform process, which will see the majority of the 195 AIBA federations receive the innovative technology.
Federations who had responded to the IOC Fund Distribution questionnaire will be given priority.
The first 40 recipients of the mass delivery include the boxing federations of Niger, Togo, Lesotho, Burundi, Gambia, Mauritius, Brazil, Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, Thailand, Philippines, Kazakhstan, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Ukraine, Lithuania, Israel, Italy, Greece, Niue Island, Nigeria, Rwanda, Uganda, Zambia, Senegal, South Africa, Cameroon, Ethiopia, Bermuda, Canada, Costa Rica, Grenada, Jamaica, Mexico, DPR Korea, Kuwait, Lebanon, Moldavia and Nepal.
Earlier in the year AIBA had commissioned special deliveries for federations who were the hosts of AIBA tournaments, such as the Samoa Boxing Federation (Oceania Championships – April 4-5), the Trinidad & Tobago Boxing Federation (Pan American Games qualification event – April 21-29), Madagascar Boxing Federation (African Championships – May 20-28) and the Mongolia Boxing Federation (Asia Championships – June 4-10).
Next shipments are scheduled on a monthly basis.
