Derby Boxer Sandy Ryan going for gold

Sandy Ryan, Derby's very own Boxing champion, will be representing Team England at this year's Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast of Australia.

Sandy said on her Twitter account: "It’s an honour and I am truly excited and will be doing my best to bring that gold medal home for my country and Derby. This is my year!"

Sandy who has 2 Golds, 1 Silver and 1 Bronze to her name from national and international competitions, was inspired to take up boxing watching her older brother David, who was a professional boxer.

Marketing Derby will be cheering Sandy on when her first fight, the Women's 69kg Quarterfinal, takes place against Lovlina Borgohain of India on Sunday 8th April.
