CAS has rejected the appeal of the International Boxing Association (IBA) against the IOC’s recommendation to revoke the organization’s recognition.
Therefore, the recommendations remained in force, the IOC will decide on further cooperation with the IBA at an extraordinary session scheduled for June 22.
In 2019, the International Boxing Association was suspended by the IOC from hosting a tournament at the Olympic Games due to various issues. These were managerial, financial, judicial and ethical violations.
The IBA did not renew the sponsorship contract with Gazprom in order to reach an agreement with the IOC Executive Committee, but this did not help to reach an agreement. The IOC’s criticism was caused by the fact that the IBA also admitted Russian and Belarusian athletes to international competitions under the state symbols of the countries.
