BOXING Australia development coach Adam Nahal put some of the region's top athletes through their paces at the weekend.
Nahal, whose sole job is to develop boxers aged between 8 and 18-years across Australia, spent Saturday and Sunday working with junior novice and intermediate boxers.
Bendigo's Lynden Hosking was a part of the boxing clinic, he said it was a successful initiative.
"We had about 40 people involved and of those about 25 were from Bendigo or Castlemaine," he said.
"It was a very popular clinic, the sport is healthy, everything is going well."
Hosking said Nahal taught boxers and coaches about what was needed for elite athletes to compete at the top level.
"Boxers learnt about specific techniques and also did some sparing," he said.
"Coaches also got to see what Australia's development coaches are looking for."
Hosking said the response participants was good.
He said he hoped the aspiring boxers would continue with the sport.
