Olympic boxing authority to discuss women fighters wearing skirts at 2012 London Games
LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) ' The governing body of Olympic boxing will meet in January to discuss whether female fighters should wear skirts instead of shorts at the 2012 London Games.
The International Amateur Boxing Association says it has not decided on uniform rules for women, following media reports that it had.
AIBA's technical and rules commission will "offer recommendations" to the ruling executive committee. The boxing group is "seeking a consensus" from the boxing world and the public.
Women's boxing will make its Olympic debut in London.
