NICOLA ADAMS MBE
The Olympic champion joins our fight for a better world.
Nicola is Great Britain’s most decorated female boxer. She made history in 2012 when she became the first female boxer to win an Olympic medal, taking home the gold. At the 2014 Commonwealth Games, she made history once again by becoming the first female Commonwealth Champion. And in 2015, Nicola won gold at the European Championships.
In recognition of her achievements, Nicola was appointed MBE by Queen Elizabeth II in 2013. One of few athletes to transcend her sport, she has become an inspiration to many.
“I am really proud to be an Ambassador for Fight for Peace as it is a fantastic charity which helps young people move away from crime and learn vital life skills, by combining boxing and martial arts with education and personal development. I am also aware of the important work that Fight for Peace does on a global scale and I visited the first Fight for Peace Academy in Rio de Janeiro shortly after London 2012. I really hope I can help to make a difference to young people’s lives and encourage more young females to become a part of this impressive and life-changing charity.”
