Caitlin WINS!!! Set to Represent USA in Bulgaria & China
At age 16, Caitlin just won three consecutive days of competition in the Youth Division(17-18 yrs. old) at the 2014 National USA Junior and Youth Open National Boxing Championships held just this past week in Reno, Nevada. What makes this impressive is that at the World Championships in the fall of 2013 where she claimed a Gold Medal for USA she boxed at pinweight which was 101lbs. She moved up two weight divisions to flyweight which is 112lbs. and beat the top females to claim the flyweight title. With the 2016 Olympics drawing near Team USA is only taking all the male weights and the three Olympic female weights (112,132,165lbs.) to major international competition in 2014. Caitlin claimed one of those spots to represent Team USA at the Youth Boxing World Championships held in Bulgaria this coming April and at the Youth Olympics held in China this coming August. Congratulations Caitlin!!!
