Team GB topped the medal table in boxing at the Olympics, securing three golds, one silver and a bronze - and that included the first ever gold medal for women's boxing, won by Nicola Adams.
Now, the so-called "Nicola Effect" is being credited with inspiring more women in London to get into the ring.
Miguel's Boxing Club in Brixton says it's seen a massive surge in interest from female customers.
Trainer and Manager Sarah Trevett said:
One woman sparring at the club, Heather Christian, told London Tonight that boxing suited her lifestyle as a mum - and that the physicality of the sport shouldn't put other women off.
Another woman bitten by the boxing bug is Leanne Spencer, a former City worker who stepped into the ring and found she liked it so much she became a personal trainer.
