Katie Taylor winning Olympic Gold Medal at London 2012 and the reaction from the crowd in her home town, Bray, Co. Wicklow, Ireland! KATIE YOU LEGEND! The wait after the bell was total agony…. Thousands gathered to see the match, to see the local girl crowned Olympic Champion! Jubilation all round…. A true living legend, a national hero. Inspring a generation.
I’d have been jumping for joy myself only for I was trying to record the reaction while balancing a kid on my shoulders! ;-)

But, the one she always wanted, Olympic Champion, was only made possible this year with the inclusion of Women’s boxing in London2012.
