Hunslet Club Boxers were invited to the White Rose Shopping Centre in South Leeds to meet the first ever female Olympic Boxing Gold medalist Nicola Adams.The Leeds born star answered their questions in front of a large crowd of shoppers and media before posing for pictures and signing some boxing gloves for the club.
When asked what she thought of places like the Hunslet Club she said “I think it’s great you know, anything that gets kids involved in boxing. I love boxing , it’s my sport and it’s fantastic to have you guys here today and to chat to you lot.”
We think Nicola is a fantastic role model for all our members and it was a real pleasure to meet her. Hopefully it is from places like the Hunslet Club in South Leeds that the Olympic stars of tommorow will come from. Thank you very much Nicola for coming and to the White Rose Shopping Centre for inviting us to be part of this special event.
