The women of the U.S. continue to make their presence felt throughout this year’s Olympics. Boxer Claressa Shields put a cherry on top this Sunday when she became the first U.S. boxer to win two gold medals. She won the latter by outclassing Holland’s Nouchka Fontijn. She did so in an effortless fashion despite the taller opponent who wanted to cut the ring off.
The combination of her gold medal in 2012 and the ease of wins in this year’s tournament made her the overwhelming favorite and she did not fail to disappoint. Shields, who is only 21 years old didn’t commit to the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, but it would be very likely.
This year’s Olympics marks the second consecutive Olympics where the women won more medals than the men. This year’s count is 61-55 in favor of the women. In 2012, the gap was even bigger, coming in at 58-45.
