The Olympics blog is moving! (Not as fast as Usain Bolt, but we’re moving!) 
The Olympics blog is moving so we can make better use of Tumblr’s community features. If you were following the Olympics blog before August 27th, you’re now following a blog called Olympic Moments.
We will still post great stuff to Olympic Moments. But, the best way keep up with the Olympics is to follow our relocated blog at olympics.tumblr.com.
We’re sorry for any trouble this causes, such as broken links on some older posts. But, we’re gonna make it up to you. There will be GIFs!

The closing ceremony of London’s 1948 Olympic Games took place 65 years ago today. Boxing was an all-male sport then. Hungary’s Laszlo Papp won middleweight gold by knocking out Britain’s John A. Wright. At London’s 2012 Games, Britain’s Nicola Adams won the first Olympic gold medal ever awarded in women’s boxing. Here, Adams jabs Chungneijang Mery Kom Hmangte of India during their flyweight match.
