Afghanistan National Boxing Federation hosts online IBA 1-star R&J Course

Eager to improve its personnel, the Afghanistan National Boxing Federation (ANBF) recently conducted an International Boxing Association (IBA) 1-star Referee & Judge Course through the video conference application Zoom as part of its development program.

Mr. Tamim Ahmad Akhtari, an experienced referee and a former supervisor at ANBF, served as the main instructor in the online seminar.

IBA Development Director Mr. Chris Roberts of Scotland joined the session as a VIP guest, sharing his wide experience and thoughts about the changes in refereeing and judging.

An examination took place at the end of the lecture, with the passers earning the chance to participate in upcoming IBA 1-star R&J courses.

The ANBF, which previously conducted educational programs for coaches and refugee boxers, expressed its gratitude for the solid support of the National Olympic Committee.

President Mr. Abdullah Sattari and Secretary-General Mr. Waheedullah Hameedi are leading the developmental projects of the national federation.

Despite the difficult political situation, Afghanistan is planning to send its best fighters to the ASBC Asian Elite Championships 2022 scheduled on October 30 to November 13 in Amman, Jordan.
