Reuters: England’s Nicola Adams won the first ever women’s boxing gold medal at the Commonwealth Games on Saturday, repeating the feat she achieved at the Olympics two years ago.
The 31-year-old flyweight beat Northern Ireland’s Michaela Walsh on a split decision after landing cleaner shots throughout the four-round bout.
“I’m absolutely over the moon. Again I’ve managed to create history,” Adams told reporters after winning England’s 50th gold of the Games.
“It was really tough. She was quite tricky and she was a real good talent. She’ll definitely be one to watch for the future.”
Boxing at the Games concludes on Saturday, with 13 finals deciding the gold medals in each of the men’s and women’s weight categories.
