On Saturday the public got the opportunity to see the faces of the four females who will be representing Barbados in the Amateur International Boxing Association (AIBA) Championship during a motorcade. The championship, which starts on Thursday, is expected to feature over 300 boxers representing 85 countries. The motorcade started at Kensignton Oval around noon and involved over ten vehicles that carried the four boxers and AIBA’s representatives, among others.Minister of Family, Youth and Sports Stephen Lashley, who led the motorcade along with participants, dedicated a minute’s silence to the six people who perished in last Friday night’s Tudor Street blaze.Competition manager Andrew Sealey said he was happy with the motorcade’s proceedings. “We felt it necessary to sensitise the public to the championship, so we hosted a motorcade. “This is also to introduce the four Barbadian boxers who have been very hard in training for the event.“We are very glad that the Minister of Family, Youth and Sports was able to join us for the duration of the event,” said Sealey.
