The Olympic Games Tripartite Commission, comprising the IOC, ANOC and ASOIF and designed to provide smaller NOCs with the opportunity to compete at Olympic Games, has awarded its places for the 2016 Olympic Women’s Boxing competition to Central African Republic, Federated States of Micronesia and Panama in the 51 kg,  60 Kg and 75 kg categories respectively.

The places can only be offered to NOCs with an average of eight or fewer athletes in individual sports/disciplines at the previous two Olympic Games and are subject to approval from AIBA and the Commission. The Rio 2016 Women Boxing competition will be only the second in the history of the Games after London 2012, and following the Commission’s appraisal, athletes from Central African Republic, Federated States of Micronesia and Panama will be among the 36 female boxers competing in Rio de Janeiro.
