Sandy Ryan, 21, from Derby had a successful start at the World Boxing Championships in Kazakhstan beating her first two opponents in the preliminary stages, earning her a place in the quarter final of the light-welterweight competition.
Sandy’s quarter final unfortunately ended with a defeat to China’s Wenli Yang, but she finished strongly winning the final round on all three judge’s score cards. Although Sandy had high hopes of reaching the final stage of the competition, a place in the quarter final is a great achievement.
Sandy has been visiting the Moulton College Injury Rehabilitation Centre for the last few months in the run up to the Women’s World Boxing Championships to help with her recovery from training sessions.
Lee Howarth, manager of the Injury Rehab Centre said "we are delighted the cryotherapy chamber has helped Sandy to prepare for the Women’s World Boxing Championships - she has been using it regularly at weekends along with her brother Dave who is a professional boxer and a former Commonwealth Light Welterweight Champion. We look forward to helping with their training sessions and following their progress in the future."
We wish all the best to Sandy and Dave for their future competitions.
