Flyweight Nicola Adams of Britain won the first Olympic gold medal in women's boxing, stunning world champion Ren Cancan of China in a 16-7 victory Thursday. Adams knocked down Ren in the second round with a dynamic flurry of punches and finished off the top-seeded flyweight in impressive style. Adams dominated the middle rounds by a combined 10-3. Adams lost the last two world championship finals to Ren, but also beat the Chinese champion in another bout earlier this year. Adams celebrated the final bell by throwing a few punches at the roaring home crowd. Adams' two British teammates also were favored to medal, but lost early. Women's boxing made its Olympic debut at the London Games.
