At London 2012, Nicola Adams OBE became the first woman ever to win an Olympic Gold medal for boxing. In Rio 2016, with the nation cheering her on, she did it all over again. A Black, gay, working class girl from a council estate fighting in a sport which didn’t accept women - how did Nicola overcome the odds stacked against her and make history? Nicola fell in love with boxing as a child - and fought her first bout when women’s boxing was still illegal in the UK. Women were reluctantly accepted into the sport when Nicola was a teenager, yet there was a shocking disparity in funding for male and female boxing, and women’s boxing was not accepted as an Olympic sport. Nicola fought for equality and worked her way up the ranks, finding her place in a male-dominated sport where women were still not welcome. As enthusiasm for the sport grew, and female boxers applied pressure, women's boxing became an Olympic sport at the London 2012 Games. Nicola fought back from a career-threatening injury to win a place in Team GB, and became a national hero when she won Gold. Nicola won a second Olympic Gold medal at Rio 2016 before turning professional, and has since become a prominent TV personality and LGBT+ icon, continuing to make history as the first contestant to be in a same-sex pair on BBC One’s ‘Strictly Come Dancing’. A hybrid of personal archive, sports footage, interviews with sports stars and those who know Nicola Adams best, this film stands as triumphant testament to the power of grit and determination. It is the story of Nicola’s refusal to be bound by limitations, overcoming disadvantage, injury and defeat to become a true champion in every sense of the word.
