Channel Ten News has had a story of a 10 year old girl participating in a boxing competition.
They report that New South Wales sets a minimum age of 14 for people of any sex to go boxing, so this kid (and presumably her parents) just trucked across into the ACT, where the minimum age is just 10, for her first competition bout.
So we’ve discovered a new export industry have we?
I’m pretty sure the medical fraternity would be queuing up to explain why boxing at such a young age is setting the kid up for lasting brain damage.
So Minister Corbell, why does the ACT warrant so much more lenient laws?
