“Champions aren’t made in the gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them — a desire, a dream, a vision.” – Muhammad Ali
Yay! Ireland now has a gold medal from the olympics, thanks to Katie Taylor (fyi, she’s a boxer, in case you didn’t know, in which case you should be very ashamed)!! She beat the Russian woman Sofya Ochigava and now is the first woman ever to win a gold medal in her category (women’s boxing was only included in the olympics this year). Among the people watching the match were Kate Middleton and British Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg. According to someone sitting nearby, Kate didn’t know the words to “The Fields of Athenry”. Shock! Horror!
Here is Ireland’s current medal table.
