Olympic Boxing - Weight Changes

Post by TheGoods »

Sorry if this has been discussed elsewhere but what are the weight changes in the Olympic boxing for Paris 2024? Steve Bunce in Boxing News this week alludes that it is going to be an absolute disaster for GB boxers?

Only four weight classes remain unchanged from Tokyo 2020, with six - three per gender - new to the Paris 2024 program. These changes will be significant and will reshape the landscape of the competition at the next Olympic Games, with new medal contenders coming into play.

Paris 2024 Weights:

Men:
51kg - Flyweight
57kg - Featherweight
63.5kg - Light Welterweight
71kg - Light Middleweight
80kg - Light Heavyweight
92kg - Heavyweight
+92kg - Super Heavyweight

Women:
50kg - Light Flyweight
54kg - Bantamweight
57kg - Featherweight
60kg - Lightweight
66kg - Welterweight
75kg - Middleweight

-

When Buncey says it will be a disaster for GB boxers I think he is referring to the Men's side of things with the weights now increasingly spread out and fewer medals on offer. For countries with developed women's boxing structures, (and GB would be one of these) the new landscape is a major opportunity for medals.
