Claressa Shields Moves On To The Next Round

Flints own Claressa Shields defeats Anna Laurell in the 2012 London Olympics guaranteeing her a spot for a bronze metal!

But I’m 100% positive Claressa will bring back the gold! Keep up the good work, all of Flint has your back! 


This is the new face of American amateur boxing – young, feminine, and fearless. On Monday, Shields won her middleweight quarterfinal fight against Sweden’s Anna Laurell, assuring herself of at least a bronze medal. Just two hours before, her teammate Marlen Esparza, a flyweight and model for Cover Girl makeup, won her quarterfinal match, meaning she, too, will leave here with a medal.

From the ruins of the men’s boxing team, an Olympic disaster, come the women, who have been allowed to fight in the Games for the first time. While the men collapsed again this year, needing a protest just to keep a lone medal hope alive, two women with distinctly different styles and personalities pounded their way to a medal stand.

After her fight, Esparza bounced through the tunnel beneath the ExCel Center stands and giggled that her hair stands on the back of her head. She glanced at her nails, some of which were painted red, white, and blue, and she laughed. She said she’s going to school after the Olympics are over and will probably never box again.
