Keep calm Ireland Katie’s got this.

Today Katie Taylor made Irish history being the first ever female boxer to ox in the Olympics. Not only has she made history but she has also secured Ireland a second Olympic medal in London 2012.  John Jo Nevin was the first Irish Olympian to secure a medal in this year’s Olympics and Now Katie Taylor has done the same.

She began boxing at the young age of 12 and has been coached by her father since then. It was in 2005 when she first gained glory when she competed in the armature European championships. Since then she has excelled becoming the undefeated champion. She is by far an unstoppable athlete in the prime of her boxing years.She is an amazing young athlete with many more years of brilliant boxing ahead of her. She is an inspiration to women in Ireland and all around the world showing us that hard work, dedication and never giving up really does pay off.
