The Olympics are still more than three months away, but the fever pitch is already starting to build. One of the most buzzed about sports is women’s boxing, which is new to the games this year. Marlen Esparza is the U.S.’s best medal prospect: she has won six straight titles at the USA Boxing National Championships and took home medals in the 2006 World Championships (bronze) and 2008 Pan American Games (gold) along with winning the first U.S. Olympic Team Trials in the history of the sport of women’s boxing.
Espraza and Jennifer Kessy, a women’s beach volleyballer, both signed on with CoverGirl to help promote their sports and LashBlast Volume and Outlast All-Day Lipcolor.
“CoverGirl’s support of women’s boxing in the U.S. and at the 2012 Summer Olympics London shows that ‘strong is beautiful’ no matter who you are,” Esparza says. We second that!
