Motivational Speaker Nicola Adams
  • Britain’s winner of the first ever Olympic & Commonwealth Women’s Boxing titles.
  • Initially worked as a builder as a young girl to fund her future boxing career path.
  • Rio Olympics 2016 to defend her London 2012 Gold Medal.

Nicola Adams was twelve years old when she started boxing having wondered into a boxing gym by accident. Four years later she was winning European Championships and funding her sport by taking parts as extras on Coronation Street and Eastenders and working as a builder. In 2010 women’s boxing was added to the London 2012 Olympic events programme and Nicola was allocated funding enabling her to train harder.

At the London Olympics Nicola entered the flyweight division as the second favourite and the clear underdog to the world number one and three-time world champion, China’s Ren Cancan. In the final Nicola knocked her opponent down and won the gold medal by a large points margin. Her large smile and outgoing personality endeared the nation to her.

Nicola is focused on defending her Olympic title in Rio in 2016 shunning the opportunity to turn professional. In 2014 she added another gold medal by becoming the first women to win a Commonwealth boxing gold medal.
