World Greatest Female Boxer Could Win Olympic Gold For Ireland

 

Updated : Aug 14, 2009

Reigning European and World Champion Katie Taylor could be bound for Olympic glory after a decision by the International Olympic Committee's executive board to allow women boxers compete in London 2012.

Boxing had been the only Olympic event without any female participants.

Women's boxing had come close to inclusion in the 2008 games, but the move was blocked amid fears that the sport was not competitive in enough countries, which could lead to potentially dangerous mismatches.

Dubliner Taylor is currently world champion in the 60kg weight class and has spoken of her desire to represent her country at the Olympics.

Three women's weight classes will be added for the London games, with one men's class dropped to make room for them.

The IOC's 15-man executive board was meeting in Berlin to consider requests from boxing and 16 other sports to incorporate new events.

The board also recommended that golf and rugby sevens should be included in the 2016 Olympics.
