Russia's Tatiana Zrazhevskaya is new 'Golden Girl' in Sweden
by Michael O'Neill
November 23, 2015

(NOT 23) The reigning champion Finland’s Mira Potkonen missed the opportunity of defending her Golden Girl championship title when this year’s event took place at the Boråshallen, Borås, Sweden this weekend.

Sadly Mira had to withdraw due to injuries sustained in recent tournaments and underwent treatment in her home country in an effort to be back at her best for next year’s European Olympic qualifiers in Turkey and the AIBA World Elite championships in Astana, Kazakhstan in May.

In her absence this year’s title went to Team Russia’s Tatiana Zrazhevskaya who annexed the 57kg title defeating compatriot Elena Gradinar 2:0 in the final.

In reaching their verdict, the jury took into consideration all the bouts in Boras and gave the following explanation as to how they reached their decision.

“With an aura of strength she rules the ring. Fast hands and with great power. She knows all distances and is very hard to hit. A world class boxer. Salute the new Champ! Tatyana Zrazhevskaya”!

Tournament organiser, Ray Husac had said on Saturday: “Since our two time champion, Mira Potkonen can ́t be here and defend her title it is an open race for the GOLDEN GIRL crown. The ‘title’ is what the whole tournament is about. It is not enough to just win your fights, you have to show greatness in all areas in the ring, both offensive and defensive boxing, you have to be a master of class and really impress the jury. You have to give the audience a little extra, you have to be the best boxer all categories in the tournament and win the fights. You have to be the best to win the title and be THE GOLDEN GIRL”. More than 240 women took part this year – a record.

So who else impressed this year? England’s Stacey Copeland struck Gold in the 69kg weight division, overcoming fancied Finn Elina Gustafsson in the semi-final 3:0 and followed that up with another comprehensive victory (3:0) over the host nation’s Linnea Molin,on Sunday. Switzerland’s ‘evergreen’ Sandra Brugger took the 60kg lightweight title at the expense of Russia’s Anna Bobyreva (2:0) whilst another Swede, the ever improving Ida Lundblad is the new champion at the 64kg light welter weight.

The visiting team from Dublin claimed a stunning 14 medals at the tournament including six Golds.
