(OCT 25) The last time we met was
in 2010 when the British Boxing team and the USA Boxing team
came in for a training camp preparing two weeks prior to the
world games that were taking place in Barbados of intense two
weeks competition. Both countries supported both sides during
the games just a long that they were not across from each other
on the other side of the ring.
Nicola Adam stayed quiet and
humble standing in line for the weigh inís each morning with her
Kellogg cereal box. She was in a very large bracket, so her
weigh inís felt like an endless competition just to make it to
the finals, making it to the end met facing off with the best in
the world from India, Mary Kom. Having fallen short at the
World' excepting the Silver Medals, but she did not fall short
in the one the most important one, the Olympics where she took
the Gold Medal.
Nicola Adams at the age of 31 knows she has a mark on her back
being the girl to beat.
Just lately...Why was she here in the USA and not with
her boxing team at the World Combat Games in Russia that were
taking place the same week? Simple answer with no disrespect to
the Games is that she had requested a holiday away a while back
and at the time there wasn't a date set for World Combat Games.
She was granted the time and had already purchased the
reservation. She was given a training schedule to follow while
she is away. When Nicola gets back from her 10-day holiday she
will be going back to a busy schedule and training with the team
for their next upcoming tournament.
