Youngest U.S. Olympic Boxer

Yesterday in the blog, we met the oldest competitor for this year’s Summer Olympics.  Now, it’s time to meet one of the youngest!  Just a few months ago, Claressa “T-Rex” Shields from Flint, Michigan was having a water balloon fight on her 17th birthday, and soon she’ll be the youngest female boxer fighting for a gold medal in the London Olympics.  This is the first time in history that women are competing in boxing.  Check out this teaser for T-Rex’s documentary, and help support the making of the film through kickstarter.

How impressive!  Wishing her the best of luck in this Summer’s Games!
