USA Boxing team member Naomi Graham takes part in drills during a media day for the team in Colorado Springs, Colo., Monday, June 7, 2021. Although she loved the sport and knew she wanted to fight, the sight of gold medalists Nicola Adams, Katie Taylor and Claressa Shields on the medal stand at the London Olympics in 2012 filled her with even more purpose. “I always had the dream, but before (2012), women couldn’t dream of going to the Olympics,” Graham said.(AP Photo/David Zalubowski)
