Repton hope to compete in Argentina next month

Repton prospect Caroline Dubois will compete for Great Britain in boxing at next month’s Youth Olympic Games.

The British Olympic Association has announced a 42-strong team for the Games, which take place in the Argentinean city of Buenos Aires from October 6-18.

The team includes 17-year-old Dubois, who won gold at the World Youth Championships in Budapest earlier this month and is the younger sister of rising professional heavyweight talent Daniel.

The squad of athletes aged between 14 and 18 will compete in 17 of the 32 sports on the programme.

Team GB Chef de Mission Mahdi Choudhury said: “These events have helped shape the careers of Team GB Olympic stars such as Jade Jones and Tom Daley and we hope the same will be said for this group of young stars.”

With her World Youth Championship success still fresh in the mind, Dubois will hope to cap a fine 2018 with a Youth Olympic medal.
