- BTEC National Diploma in Sport - Boxing Academy
Nicola studied a BTEC National Diploma in Sport in 2007-2008 at Hopwood before going on to win a Boxing Gold Medal at the London Olympics in 2012 and again in Rio 2016.
As part of the Hopwood Hall Boxing Academy, Nicola won national titles and travelled to Barbados in 2010 to compete in the Women's World Championships where she won a silver medal.
Jimmy Barker, Boxing Academy Manager at time said,
“We are all very proud of Nicola achievements during her time at the Hopwood Hall College Boxing Academy. I’m sure that the national titles and medals she won during her time as a Sports student would have provided the foundations on which Nicola can achieve her dreams.”
Those dreams were realised in London 2012 and continued in Rio 2016!
