A taskforce has been established by the Uganda Olympic Committee (UOC) to help the organisation select its boxers for Tokyo 2020 qualification events.
The resolution was one of several taken at a UOC information meeting on the boxing event at next year's Games following the decision from the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to suspend the International Boxing Association as the Olympic governing body for the sport.
The IOC ruling, which bars AIBA from involvement in the sport at the Games, means entries for the Olympic boxing qualifiers for Tokyo 2020 will come through National Olympic Committees rather than national boxing federations.
An IOC taskforce, of which UOC President and IOC member William Blick is a member, is tasked with running the qualification system for Tokyo 2020 and the boxing tournament itself.
The UOC decided to create a similar group to "manage the national boxing trials, oversee Olympic boxing preparations and educate all athletes and boxing officials".
The Uganda Boxing Federation (UBF) will be asked to find the boxers eligible to compete for the country at the African qualification event and the final qualifier before the Games.
A national boxing Athletes’ Commission is also set to be established by the UOC as part of its efforts to ensure Ugandan boxers can compete at Tokyo 2020.
The meeting, attended by officials from the UOC, UBF and the National Council of Sports, was held to inform the boxing fraternity in Uganda of the steps taken by the IOC and the impact it has on them.
A second meeting with all athletes and coaches is due to be held at Lugogo Indoor Stadium in Kampala later this month.
Dakar is set to stage the African qualifier between January and April, with the final qualifier in Tokyo taking place in May.
