Nicola Adams boxes her way to gold
The first ever gold medal in Olympic women's boxing has been won by Team GB's Nicola Adams in the fly category.
A fantastic fight from the 29-year-old saw her dominate the ring, beating China's Cancan Ren 16-7, and at one point knocking her opponent to the floor.
This is a historic medal to win, as this is the first time that women's boxing has ever been included in the Olympics.
Its not the Gold medal thats important here! Its that it couldnt have gone to a more deserving person!
Nichola is true charming, polite, totally unasuming ambassador for all the young people of Britain.
A lovely well mannered girl from a very ordinary background.
Fantastic result!..One of the highlights of the games for me!
