Women boxers have choice of skirts or shorts at London Games
Los Angeles: Women boxers will have the choice of wearing skirts or shorts in the ring at this year`s London Olympics, the sport`s world governing body said on Sunday.
A spokesman for the International Amateur Boxing Association (AIBA) said the executive committee would vote "in the next few days" on the proposed solution to what has become a controversial issue.
AIBA president Ching-Kuo Wu of Taiwan told a world conference on women and sport in Los Angeles on Saturday that female fighters would not be forced to wear skirts.
