Maddison’s go­ing for gold

West Lothian Courier - - Sports -

Brox­burn boxer Maddison Clark­son has been se­lected to rep­re­sent Team Scot­land at the pres­ti­gious TriNa­tions Cham­pi­onships in Cardiff later this month.

The 13-year-old south­paw will be go­ing for gold in the 2005s 43kg cat­e­gory against the best box­ers from Scot­land, Wales and Eng­land at Sophia Gar­dens in the Welsh cap­i­tal on July 27 and 28.

And mum Lor­raine is con­fi­dent that the young star can bring back the ti­tle.

She said:“Maddison is re­ally ex­cited about the chance to com­pete in the Tri Nations and we were both shocked and de­lighted when we got the let­ter through say­ing that she had been se­lected for the com­pe­ti­tion. It was some­thing that was on her bucket list and she has worked hard to achieve.

“We don’t know too much at this stage about who she will be com­ing up against, but she’s just go­ing to be fo­cus­ing on her own game and do­ing ev­ery­thing she can to be prop­erly pre­pared for the chal­lenge.”

Maddison fights out of Sparta Box­ing Acad­emy in Grange­mouth.
