Nicola Adams qualifies for Rio Olympics

Nicola Adams has booked her place at the Rio Olympics after cruising to victory at the European qualifying tournament in Samsun, Turkey.

The 33-year-old scored a unanimous decision win over Marielle Hansen of Norway to ensure she will defend her 2012 gold medal in Brazil.

It means Adams will get the chance to become the first British boxer to win two Olympic titles since Harry Mallin in Paris in 1924.

Adams started aggressively against her experienced opponent, repelling Hansen's advances and taking it clearly on the scorecard.

Despite getting a little wayward with her shots in the middle rounds, Adams finished with a flourish to complete a shut-out victory and book her place on the plane to Rio.
