Great Britain’s Nicola Adams Makes History: Becomes the First-Ever Female Olympic Gold Medallist In Boxing!
By James Slater: Sporting history was made moments ago at London 2012, as Nicola Adams of Leeds, U.K defeated archrival Ren CanCan of China to win Olympic gold at flyweight. This, the very first Olympics in which women have been a part of the boxing squad, has been a huge success.
29-year-old Adams and CanCan met twice previously this year, winning one bout each, and CanCan is a three-time world amateur champ. The opinions were divided as to who would win the gold today, but in the end Adams, boxing aggressively, cleverly and, well, superbly, dominated the action to win each of the four-rounds and to triumph by a final, commanding score of 16-7.
Adams was the boss from the start, although the opening round was very close, and from the 2nd-round on there was really only one winner. Adams scored a sensational knockdown in the 2nd, when a left hook did the job. The 3rd saw CanCan, somewhat desperate now, coming forward and pressing, but Adams maintained her composure and landed more shots.
The 4th and final two-minutes saw Adams box, trade and jab very well. The writing was on the wall, and both fighters knew it.
Then the crowd erupted as the official decision they were waiting for was announced.
“Yeah, it feels good,” said a beaming Adams afterwards. The history-maker, as the BBC commentator said, is now an Olympic immortal.
