Kishen Narsi retained in AIBA committee
New Delhi: Former three-time Olympic referee, Kishen Narsi of India was recently elected as additional executive committee member of the International Boxing Association (AIBA) for the second time in succession at its congress in Almaty, Kazakhstan.
Narsi, who was named AIBA’s ‘Best Technical Delegate of 2009’, was first elected for the post at Santa Domingo in 2006.
The ‘New AIBA Scoring System’ that rewards the individual judgement of its officials, was also approved at the congress.
The new system will be easier for audience to understand with higher individual scores, and will lead to greater transparency.
The new system will also stimulate coaches and boxers to be creative in movement.
Keeping in mind the new scoring system, the Indian Amateur Boxing Federation (IABF) in consultation with the Sports Authority of India (SAI), will organise special seminars and clinics for coaches in a phased manner so that the transition is carried out smoothly and Indian boxers stand to gain when the system is introduced.
Meanwhile, it was learnt that the Indian men and women’s boxing team for the upcoming Asian Games will be leaving for Guangzhou on November 9. Boxing event commences from November 16.
