Claressa Shields SpeakerOlympic gold medalist Claressa Shields has been showered with praises and celebrations since returning from the London Olympics and this past week those celebrations continued. Claressa Shields was honored during a ceremony at Perani Arena for FOX 66’s Fall Back to School Festival and was presented the key to the City of Flint. Flint Mayor Dayne Walling told Shields on Stage:

“With everything the city of Flint is going through, I can’t give you another gold medal, but the highest honor that I can afford to you, on behalf of the city of Flint, Claressa Shields, I present to you a key to the City of Flint.”

Claressa Shields road to success is quite incredible as she was introduced to boxing by her father, Bo Shields, who had boxed in underground leagues. Bo was in prison beginning when Shields was two years old, and released when she was nine. After his release, he talked to her about boxer Laila Ali, piquing her interest in the sport, although Bo nevertheless believed that boxing was a men’s sport and refused to allow Shields to pursue it until she was eleven.

At that time, she began boxing at Berston Field House in Flint, where she met her coach and trainer, Jason Crutchfield. Shields credits her grandmother with encouraging her not to accept restrictions based on her gender.

Claressa Shields became the first woman and the only American boxer to win a gold medal at the London Olympic games.
