In this context, YAK Agency plays a key role in managing event communication, handling press operations, press office, and relations with international media. This responsibility has been entrusted to us through our longstanding collaboration with the International Olympic Committee (IOC), which, since 2019, has assigned YAK Agency the task of managing communication before, during, and after all the boxing qualification events, initially for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games and now for the new Olympic cycle leading to Paris 2024.

Our commitment abroad will continue in a few weeks with the Pacific Games in the Solomon Islands, the final continental qualification stage. This time, it will be the turn of the best boxers from the Oceanian continent to compete and pursue the dream of representing their nation at the Paris 2024 Olympics.
