Nicola Adams makes boxing history!

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/mobile/olympics/2012/stories/18913924

I have never been a big fan of boxing, but there's something about Nicola Adams that had me rooting for her from the start. And she did it! First female Olympic boxing champ. Well done Nicola!

I was a boxer back in High School.....I could have gone to the Olympics too....if I had just won more fights!

Amateur boxing is a great sport, and much more complicated and disciplined than most people imagine. Congratulations on her victory, there is no doubt she earned it!

Regards!

Did you eventually learn that blocking punches with your face isn't the best strategy?
It took a few times for me to figure it out.

I did pretty good at avoiding punches to the face Jim....it was just hitting that damn canvas face down that did all the damage!

I kept all my teeth, but I think my nose grew considerably in the few years I fought. Otis calls me the "Big Ugly"...and we all know Otis is never wrong!

Mrs Rupert was a cheerleader in High School, and one of the most popular do-gooders in school, unlike the renegade she married......Sometimes I hear her mumbling..."where did I go wrong?" Well, even dumb Squirrels know the answer to that one!

Mrs Rupert on the right...still lovely...still trying to reform old Rupert after 46 years!

No you're fine looking for an older fella Rupert.

I've just had a wisdom tooth out and the left side of my face has ballooned, so currently not looking so great :-(

Now I know how Kanye feels!
