In a new development, Turkey's boxing federation has criticised organisers of an Olympic qualifying tournament in London after three Turkish fighters and a coach tested positive for the coronavirus.

 

It must be mentioned that the London competition featured around 350 male and female boxers from dozens of European nations and was the first opportunity for boxers from Europe to qualify for Tokyo 2020.

 

"The International Olympic Committee Boxing Task Force and the local committee in London  responsible for the organisation acted as if nothing happened rather than postpone the tournament over coronavirus while every corner of the world has been on fire since December," Eyup Gozgec, president of the Turkish Boxing Federation, was quoted by AFP.
