After winning the Olympic gold medal Saturday, what is next for Great Britain’s boxing women’s middleweight Lauren Price?
Price, 27, was a four-time youth kickboxing champion and a promising footballer with 52 caps for the Wales squad. She propped up her boxing ambitions on the bumper of a taxi, which she drove to help support her goals.
And now at Tokyo, she is golden.
Price took a 5-0 win over Li Qian of China, using her speed and footwork to dance in and out of the pocket and out of range of her taller opponent.
Only 27 years old, Price is already planning to compete at the 2024 Games in Paris. During her run, she defeated old rival Nouchka Fontijn of the Netherlands, who defeated Canadian Tammara Thibeault along the way.
Price’s medal was Great Britain’s 65th and last of the Tokyo Games.
