Olympics: Adams - "I massively want that Gold"

I am so happy to be here participating. I am in the final now and all I want to do is make my mum and my family and friends proud.

I think I have done that today by getting into the final. I beat Mery Kom in the world championships to qualify but this time I was not taking any chances.

You have to be special to be a five-time world champion and I think that shows my class again by beating her to get to the final.

I massively want that Gold. Words can't express how much I want it. No-one will remember the three Silvers I got in the worlds if I get that gold. It will mean everything to me.

– Nicola Adams
