What do you want me to say about Katie Taylor? Haven’t we been writing about the girl here forever?
What an amazing performance by an astonishing athlete.
In truth, we could just as easily be talking about Katie Taylor, footballer, or Katie Taylor, swimmer, because this girl is a consummate athlete, one of those deeply annoying people who can excel at whatever sport they choose to dominate.
It’s irritating, until you realise that you’ve entered the presence of greatness, in the shape of Katie Taylor, the finest female boxer on the planet, and perhaps the finest boxer of either gender to climb into a ring in the modern era.
Katie’s a phenomenon, an unbeatable combination of fitness, athleticism and natural ability, combined with self belief and determination. Who can stand up to that?
Katie is a true Olympian, displaying all the dignity and skill required of that status.
Well done, girl.
