Olympic Life for Conner
Maverick Stars Trust ambassador Conner Tudsbury has settled into the Olympic lifestyle as he helps prepare his fellow GB Boxing team mates for the Tokyo Games.
Conner flew out with the rest of the squad ahead of the tournament, which begins next week. While qualification for this Games has come a little soon for the man from Moss Side Fire Station Boxing Club, the experience of being on the GB squad, sparring and training with the team, is vital ahead of the next Olympic cycle. "It's brilliant to be involved and to get to sample the atmosphere and a country I'm really interested in," Conner said. "Obviously I'll be working with Ben Whittaker (GB light-heavyweight) to help sharpen him ahead of the competition. I can't wait for it to be my turn, which it will be, at Paris in 2024!"
It's been a great year for Conner who capped his first international tournament by claiming gold in May at the Socikas tournament in Lithuania.
