Katie 15

Katie Taylor fell in love with boxing at the age of six but quickly found that her avenues into the ring were blocked by the sport's traditionally sexist culture. Women were banned from boxing in Ireland, so she dressed as a boy to enter competitions. This was the first of many obstacles that intensified her drive to succeed and strengthened her relationship with her dad, who was both her coach and closest confidant.
