About this item

At London, 2012, Nicola Adams made history. The flyweight boxer - nicknamed the smiling assassin - became the first ever UK woman to win an Olympic Gold medal for boxing. In Rio 2016, with the nation cheering her on, she did it again. Nicola stumbled into boxing in her local sports center in Leeds while her mom was at aerobics. At 13 she decided that she would win an Olympic Gold: nobody would stop her. Years of relentless training, fundraising, and determination have seen Nicola battle injury, prejudice, and defeat to become one of Britain best-loved athletes and an inspiration to all those chasing a seemingly impossible dream.
