Boxing

 
Boxing is being organized in Rotterdam Ahoy, the city’s sports temple, which has been host to sports events for decades. Several sports will be taking place in the six halls at Ahoy, so you will be able to encourage your colleagues in different sports! Boxing came over from the United Kingdom and quickly became extremely popular. During the Olympic Games in 1928, Rotterdam native Bep van Klaveren – the ‘Dutch windmill’ – won gold, and afterwards Orhan Delibas and Arnold Vanderlyde followed in his footsteps with Olympic medals. During the Rio Games, women’s boxing was on the program for the second time and Rotterdam’s Nouchka Fontijn seized the silver.
