AIBA Executive Committee, on its last meeting, approved candidacies and welcomed Khyzhniak and Testa as new members of the executive committee with voting rights. They took part in their first executive committee conference call on March 29th. 

“It is a great honor to become a member of the AIBA Executive Committee for the first time in history as one of the athlete representatives. I take this responsibility seriously and intend to ensure constant incorporation of interests of boxers into the strategic and administrative decision making processes of AIBA," said Oleksandr Khyzhniak.

I have set a number of priority tasks for my new role, such as the early approval of the AIBA calendar for the coming years, including the qualification system for the 2024 Olympics. I also find it important to get more detailed clarification of the criteria used by judges to score rounds."
