Flint’s Gold Medalist Claressa Shields to Host Free Youth Boxing Camp at Atwood Stadium

Coming out of the mean streets of Flint, Michigan, Claressa Shields is not stranger to fighting, both in the ring and in life.  The Olympics gold medalist is now putting on free youth clinic in Flint to help instill some of that fighting spirit into her community.

You would think that being the first American woman to win a gold medal in boxing would change a person, but that’s not the case with Flint native, Claressa Shields.  The 17-year-old took home the gold medal a few weeks ago during the summer games and became a nationally known figure.

Instead of letting the new found fame and success change her, Claressa Shields is using it to help her community.  The hometown girl will host a free youth boxing clinic at Atwood Stadium on Saturday, September 15th.  While the event is free, there are only 200 spots available and participants must be at least 8-years-old with a signed waiver.  The camp goes from 10 am to 2 pm.

If you are interested in getting your kid involved, stop by the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Flint and at the Haskell Community Center.
