People’s Republic of China’s LI Qian was outfought by the Brit in the women’s middleweight final to win silver to Price’s gold.

Lauren Price beat People’s Republic of China’s LI Qian in the women’s middleweight boxing final on the last day of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games (Sunday 8 August). The British boxer won with a unanimous decision from the judges.

That takes Great Britain's boxing medal tally to six medals from 11 fighters. Price adds her gold to compatriot Galal Yafai's title in the lightweight division on Saturday (7 August) and to two silvers and two bronzes from Tokyo 2020.

Price, who is also a former kickboxing world champion and footballer, got her tactics spot on, keeping cool and calm against Rio bronze medallist Li, on her way to the title.
