London, Mar 2(ANI): Female boxers at the London Olympics will be allowed to wear either shorts or a skirt under a new amendment to amateur boxing rules.

 

On Thursday, The International Amateur Boxing Association (AIBA) published the changes regarding the updated ruled on its website, The Herald Sun reports.

 

In a new sentence in the Competition Uniform section, AIBA says female boxers will wear 'either shorts or the option of a skirt.' The new rule specifies no particular length for the skirt.

 

AIBA faced international criticism and sexism charges in recent months when officials debated whether to ask women's boxers to wear skirts in competition

 

AIBA President Wu Ching-Kuo said he had heard from fans who couldn't tell women from men when fighters wore protective headgear.

 

Although AIBA insisted it never contemplated requiring boxers to wear skirts, its debate of the issue infuriated women's rights advocates in recent months. (ANI)
