After successfully staging the AIBA Women’s Junior/Youth World Boxing Championships earlier on in the year, the Chinese Taipei Boxing Federation ( CTBF) with it’s President Mr Wu-Nan Lee, signed the AIBA HeadsUp! Charter in Taipei City in presence of AIBA President Ching-Kuo Wu. With Gender equality taking an important place in AIBA’s vision and HeadsUp! initiative, with this commitment, the CTBF will continue to proactively promote and support women’s boxing in 2016. The CTBF’s existing strong grassroots program and elite boxing team, with talents like Chen Nien Chin who won silver in last year’s Nanjing Youth Olympics in the 75 KG category, make it a perfect hub for HeadsUp! in the region.
