Publish date:

Claressa Shields, the 17-year-old middleweight from Flint, Mich., who won an Olympic gold medal on Thursday in London, appeared on the front page of Friday's Detroit Free Press.


The only member of the American team to capture gold, Shields is regarded as one of the fastest-rising stars in women's boxing -- and one of the feel-good stories of the London Games.
