Team Russia Dominates 2019 AIBA Women's WC with Three Gold

Wishing to put forward an exclamation mark to all those, doubting in the stature of local amateur boxing system, Russian Boxing Federation (the same sanctioning body which runs prizefighting in Russia) achieved a unique feat in staging back-to-back amateur world championships – both amongst males and females – within the same country.

Unlike AIBA Men’s world championship, which has been just narrowly won by the Uzbek national Team with the Russians closing onto the second place just a tear drop behind them, the female competition, which had been performed in Ulan-Ude, Buryatiya, was dominated by the hosts.

Team Russia acquired  six medals within ten weight classes, including three gold, one silver and two bronze and outlanding the Chinese team (1 gold – 3 silver – 1 bronze). Team Turkey took the third place in overall standings (1 gold – 2 silver) beating the U.S. national squad in quality over quantity (1 gold – 2 bronze).


Ironically, the Women’s championship was contested in ten weight classes, two more than that among men. Presented below are the final stands and gold medal bout results in each weight class.
