Rutherglen Reformer - - Motors -

Young Cam­bus­lang club boxer Chloe Bod­wick has done more than enough to make her late papa proud af­ter be­ing se­lected for Scot­land at the GB Three Na­tions Championships this week­end.

Chloe, 13, of O’Neils BC, will take part in the event at the Raven­scraig Re­gional Sports Fa­cil­ity on June 3 and 4, and mum Donna says she’s al­ready mak­ing the whole fam­ily im­mensely proud. She said:“Chloe is do­ing re­ally well, has been in at Box­ing Scot­land and I’m de­lighted – I’m very proud and chuffed for her.

“She has worked so hard for it and is en­ti­tled to the success she is hav­ing.

“This is the first time she has been se­lected for Scot­land at this level and she is do­ing a lot more for her coun­try.

“Chloe has been box­ing for just over a year. She took it up just af­ter her papa Pat passed away and she wanted to make him proud – she has cer­tainly done that.

“Pat was a boxer and it kind of runs in the fam­ily. Chloe has been coached at O’Neill’s Gym by Brian Mur­phy, Andy Clayton, Scott McGre­gor, Paul Anderson and Danny McMur­ray and she has taken to it very well.

“She’s very ded­i­cated, is away run­ning ev­ery morn­ing, and there’s no stop­ping her.”

Coach Brian added: “She is the cur­rent Scot­tish Cham­pion and she’s been go­ing from strength to strength.

“It has been hard to match her lately to some­one of a sim­i­lar weight but she’s been work­ing re­ally hard.”
