Claressa Shields of Flint, Mich., 2012 Olympic women’s middleweight boxing champion. Because 2012 is the first year women have been allowed to compete in Olympic boxing, Shields is the first woman ever to earn the title. Just 17 years old, she defeated 33-year-old Russian boxer Nadezda Torlopova, becoming the second youngest fighter to win a gold medal in either men’s or women’s boxing.
