Mother Jones on Claressa Shields Post-Olympics



http://www.motherjones.com/media/2013/03/claressa-shields-flint-photos-olympic-boxer-gold-medal?google_editors_picks=true

A very interesting article from Mother Jones about Shields' lack of an Olympics afterlife, i.e., no endorsements, recognition, etc (except for a free Camaro and $25,000 in award money).

She's still training, of course, or trying to anyway, preparing for the Nationals and then the 2016 Olympics, but the article gives the impression that she's having a bit of a tough time.

Anyway, it's a nice article, as much photo essay as write-up.
