Amy Broadhurst, a world champion, is seeking to switch from representing Ireland to Great Britain in order to compete in the Paris Games.

Amy Broadhurst, the current world champion, is considering changing her nationality from Ireland to Great Britain in order to qualify for the Paris Olympics. The Irish Athletic Boxing Association (IABA) has been contacted by GB Boxing on behalf of Broadhurst, expressing her desire to switch allegiance. While the IABA has expressed disappointment, they have stated that they will not stand in her way if she decides to proceed with the change.

If approved by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), Broadhurst plans to compete in the lightweight category (60kg) at the Paris Games. However, despite being a world, European, and Commonwealth Games champion, she has been informed by the High Performance Unit that she will not be assessed for the upcoming second World Qualifying tournament in Bangkok. Instead, they wanted to evaluate her and Lisa O’Rourke for the European Championships in Serbia.

Broadhurst expressed her frustration with the situation and has informed her psychologist that she will not be returning to the high-performance center in Ireland. She is considering not going back at all and described the situation as confusing.
