Hello there, boxing fans around the world, welcome once again to another edition of talking fight today, we’re talking about the olympics and, in fact, gender equality at the olympics and how it’s progressed over the years as well as a brief little recap on the female boxers from Great britain, who will be taking part, hopefully in the olympics event in july in tokyo.
My cohort christian is, i was going to say, balls deep, but knee deep eyeballs deep in the covered playbook.
That’S just been issued and asked me to take this one solo.
So here we go uh, as stated.
Let me start off with a little bit of about gender equality.
Gender equality is far more than just a human right.
It is a necessity for sustainable growth, peaceful and a prosperous world.
In the last decades, we can see a significant change, although there are still many gender issues that girls and women have to face every day and the goal for almost every female would be achieving gender equality, because that will allow them to enjoy the same opportunities rights Resources and protections as males sport is one of the most powerful platforms where gender equality can be promoted, the main reason being most of the time.
Females don’t get the chance to perform in the same sport such as boxing, because it is considered to be a manly sport.
One of the most notable changes done about this issue is the fact that the international olympic committee, as the leader of the olympic movement, started taking continuous actions to show the world what gender equality.
What is gender equality and they are doing their best to empower girls and women.
Women didn’t compete in boxing or most other sports in ancient times, but in modern times you can see more and more women.
Boxers who’ve started training.
In 1904, the olympic games started featuring women’s boxing, but just like a display event, but just like a display event because the whim – oh i see, but just like a display event, because the women didn’t have permission to compete in amateur matches that was until 1980, when The fitness movement helped to make boxing more accessible to females and in 1990, women finally got an official permission to box and competitions.
The first time a woman got a chance to participate in every sporting olympic games, including women’s boxing, was back in london, 2012.
The sport was continuously rejected due to concerns about the international competition standard, although the number of boxers licenses was growing from year to year, and since then, a lot of changes were made to the olympic competition program.
Their support was included and the number of events and athletes was reduced and, of course, more female athletes were included in the olympics.
In the competition of rio in 2016, there are 45.
6 percent of women participants in 2020.
In tokyo 2021, the women represent 48.
8 percent of the total athletes in the next olympic games in paris 2024.
The olympic games will achieve a full gender balance and the number of women participants will be 50.
Boxing will have six women’s events taking away one event from the men’s competition achieving gender equality in boxing in amateur boxing.
The females have to follow the same rules as in mailboxing competing in three rounds of three minutes and a one minute break in between the rounds.
The winning methods are the same victory via points and victory via knockout.
The only exceptions are, the females have to wear breast protectors and protective headgears, and the groin protection is optional.
Amazing progress has been made in terms of balancing the numbers between male and female athlete.
Participants in every game, however, there are still challenges remaining, such as the inequalities in leadership and the international olympic committee is even working towards appointing more females to leadership roles within the key government positions and administration to make those inequalities equal.
The international olympic committee has made a huge step ahead for gender equality and has offered females from all around the world the greater opportunity to participate in sporting events, although there are still many who need to follow this example, so gender equality can be truly achieved in The world: well, since it’s female friday here on talk and fight, got ta mention katie taylor who’s fighting this weekend tomorrow, katie taylor is to defend her undisputed lightweight belt against natasha jones tomorrow at manchester arena it would not be the first time the pair has met.
However, back when they were amateur boxers, taylor and jonas battled in the quarterfinals of the women’s late lightweight contest at the london 2012 olympic games.
Ireland’S taylor was the victor beating britain’s jonas 26 to 15.
