PCYC boxers win their divisions
Umina PCYC boxers Anja Stridsman and Kaye Scott have won their divisions at the 2020 Asian-Oceania Olympic Qualification Pre-Selection Tournament earlier this month.
Anja Stridsman competed in the Women's Light (57-60kg) division and won her opening match against Victoria's Ellie Fry to progress straight to the finals.
Kaye Scott competed in the Women's Welter Weight (64-69kgs) and also won her first bout against Queensland's Connie Chan to move to the finals as well.
Anja beat Queensland's Angel Rushton to take the gold medal and her division title.
Kaye beat fellow NSW competitor Jessica Messina to take the gold and title in the Welter Weight.
Both are now the number one ranked Australian female boxers in their divisions and have qualified for the Asia/Oceania Olympic Games Qualification Tournament.
Should they place in the top four of their division at the tournament they'll be eligible for selection to the Australian Olympic Team.
Umina PCYC's Jason Fawcett also competed at the pre-selection tournament but was knocked out in his first round of the Men's Welter Weight (69kgs) division by Queensland's Dylan Biggs.
