Let it not be said that Great Britain lacks versatility. From winning a dressage gold already today, less than an hour later Team GB were celebrating their second gold medal, this time in Women’s boxing thanks to Nicola Adams. The 29 year old took to the ring against world champion Ren Cancan from China, both women making history as being part of the first ever women’s boxing final to take place at the Olympics. First EVER EVER!
After years of adversity, set backs, injury and a lack of funding Nicola finally made her mark on the boxing world by getting gold and capping off 16 years of hard work and dedication to her sport.
Well Done Nicola!
