Guyana’s most experienced referee/judge Ramona Agard has been appointed to officiate at the Americas Boxing Confederation (AMBC) Elite Women Championship in Honduras in June.
The Guyanese AIBA One Star official was notified by way of a letter sent by AMBC president Argentine Osvaldo Bisbal.
The letter, seen by Kaieteur sport stated: “It is a great pleasure to appoint you as International Referee/Judge for the 2019 AMBC Elite Women Continental Championships, San Pedro Sula, Honduras.” Agard is expected to arrive in Honduras on Junes 3 and depart on June 9.
Agard said that she was not surprised when news of the appointment was received. “I know that the president of the Guyana Boxing Association Mr. Steve Ninvalle has been pushing for development, not only Guyana but the Caribbean. With him now being elected as a vice president of AMBC the entire Caribbean can look forward to more appointments of its officials to major international tournaments,” Agard said.
“I plan to do my best, which hopefully will open the door for other Guyanese officials. I must give thanks to God and president Ninvalle for this opportunity,” she added. The trip to Honduras would be the second overseas engagement this year for the experienced Agard. Last month she travelled to Haiti to officiate in that country’s National Championships.
