Boxing, weightlifting among several sports left out in next Games


The sports the brought us pride and medals in the last Olympic Games may be our first
and last.
According to the International Olympic Committee or the IOC, boxing, weightlifting and
modern pentathlon are currently not included in the list of sporting events for the 2028
Los Angeles Summer Olympic Games.
In those two sports that we finally had our best Olympic performance. First-ever
Olympic gold medal courtesy of weightlifter Hidilyn Diaz, two silvers from Carlo Paalam
and Nesthy Petecio and the bronze of Eumir Marcial in boxing.
To be left out only means we now have lesser chance of topping our 2020 Tokyo
Olympics stint.
However, there is still a chance for the sport to continue if they can address the issues
on them before the finalization of the Games’ events.
