08 Aug Tokyo Olympics: Lauren Price wins boxing gold in women’s middleweight | UK News
Team GB’s Lauren Price has won gold in the women’s middleweight at the Tokyo Olympics.
She defeated China’s Li Qian at the Kokugikan Arena on the last day of the games.
It is the 22nd gold medal at the games for Britain.
Price had been stretched to her limit last time out against Nouchka Fontijn, edging out her Dutch rival on a wafer-thin split decision, but there was no such drama in Sunday’s final.
The 27-year-old from Wales was able to use her superior lateral movement to confound Li, getting in and out of range at will to control the tempo throughout to claim a unanimous points win.
