SINCE November 2009 Rob McCracken has led the GB Boxing
programme. In that time famously Anthony Joshua, Luke Campbell and Nicola Adams
have won four Olympic gold medals between them. Britons won eight medals in
total in the last two Olympic boxing tournaments (as many medals as the UK won
in Olympic Games since 1980 combined). Historically it has also been
notoriously hard to medal at major tournaments, that is the World and European
championships as well as the Olympics. But over the last 10 years GB boxers
have won a remarkable 81 medals from 25 majors, an unprecedented run of
success.

HAS your time at GB gone quickly?

It’s gone fast but it’s been really enjoyable. Some really
positive people and superb achievements from the boxers so it’s been a really
good 10 years.
