EBBW Vale boxer Ashley Brace has been forced to withdraw from the Commonwealth Games after the Amateur International Boxing Association refused to sanction her involvement.

Brian Davies, Chef de Mission of Team Wales, said: "It is with great disappointment that we can confirm boxer Ashley Brace will no longer compete for Team Wales at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

"AIBA have taken the decision to refuse approval for her accreditation due to her previous involvement at the 2013 Unified Kickboxing World Championships which makes her ineligible to compete.

"The Welsh Boxing Association has contacted AIBA to clarify this decision and accepts their ruling.

"Ashley is a fantastic young athlete with bags of potential and both Welsh Boxing and the Commonwealth Games Council for Wales are saddened that she now won’t have the opportunity to compete at the Games in just two weeks-time."
