fight like a girl

Marlen Esparza (USA), National Champion and Covergirl

This years Olympic games in London is pretty historic. Women’s amateur boxing is being included for the first time. After years of campaigning for inclusion, a small field of competitors, in only three weight classes will be going for gold this summer. I’ve been seeing some great support in the media for the women, who just like their male counterparts train hard and dedicate their lives to the sport of boxing and being the best. Congrats and good luck to all the women who will compete for their countries at the Olympics this summer. I salute you!

Enjoy some pics of Marlen Esparza (USA), Mary Kom (India) and Mary Spencer (Canada) – seen in various ads for Covergirl and Nike and also in magazine articles focusing on their road to London.
