That achievement earned the 24-year-old Eaton not only a gold medal, but also the ceremonial title of &quot;World&#39;s Greatest Athlete.&quot; Fri, 10 Aug 2012 00:40:49 +0000 David Nogueras 13137 at http://nwpr.org Three Sisters Don't Pull Punches In Former Men-Only Sport http://nwpr.org/post/three-sisters-dont-pull-punches-former-men-only-sport <p>WENATCHEE, Wash. - Up until the last few decades it was considered indecent for women to box. This year, women&rsquo;s boxing will make its Olympic debut in the Summer Games of London. The contenders for the first-ever U.S. Olympic women&#39;s boxing team face off in Spokane Feb. 13-19. It&#39;s a big development on the international stage. But as Jessica Robinson reports, the face of boxing has already been changing in small clubs across the Northwest.
