Lowestoft: Boxer Qualifies For Olympics

Lowestoft boxer Anthony Ogogo is telling Heart how it feels to have qualified for the Olympic games in London this summer.

The 23-year-old has been boxing since he was 12 and last week qualified to represent Team GB in this year's Olympics. 

He's telling Heart he hopes his appearance at the Olympics will inspire more children across Suffolk and Norfolk to get involved in the sport: "Boxing isn't that big around here. What I want more than anything is, after the Olympic games, all the boxing clubs in Suffolk, all the boxing clubs in Norfolk, all the boxing clubs in East Anglia to be filled with kids because I've inspired them. I'd love that so much."
