Aspire Zone Foundation (AZF) welcomed Canada’s national women’s boxing team in preparation for the Women’s World Boxing Championship 2018, scheduled to begin on the 15th of November in New Delhi, India.
The travelling party is comprised of six female fighters and coaches who have travelled to Doha to undertake a comprehensive training programme, with their sights set on excelling at the Championships.
During the training camp — which runs until November 11 — the team will take full advantage of the facilities and expertise on offer at AZF which has become the preferred destination for large numbers of international teams competing in a wide range of sports.
Assistant Coach Samir El Mais explained the objectives of the training camp at Aspire and said: “We’ve travelled here from Canada to help acclimatise to the heat and adjust to different time zones. This marks the final stage of our preparations for the World Championships and we are very impressed by the world-class facilities and expertise that Aspire has to offer athletes. Training and preparation is critical for any boxer ahead of a fight, to sharpen their skills and ensure maximum fitness. And with a comprehensive, week-long training programme mapped out for us here at Aspire, we really do have everything we need.”
During their stay, the Canadian national boxing team will benefit from an intensive programme that integrates strength training, traction stretches, fight practice and cardio workouts in Aspire Park.
