In the game of sports, you win some and you lose some. Not every sportsperson gets the privilege of getting to the zenith in their career. For some they were able through dint of hard work to hit the glorious mark in their chosen field of sports. One of such who has hit this mark and even broken a country record is James DeGale.
DeGale is a British boxer who plies his trade in the middleweight division. Today, DeGale is a British boxer who has made his country proud curtsy of the many battles he has won in the boxing ring. He is a devoted professional who gives all it will legally take to achieve the height he has gotten to today in his weight division.
DeGale is a gentle man both inside and outside the ring. We have heard in recent times incidences of boxers taking performance enhancing drugs and they are caught red handed. Instead of grace; such pugilists bring disgrace to their country and to themselves by extension.
DeGale has broken the record in that he is the very first British boxer to have won an Olympic gold medal and going on further to win a world title. He was gold medalist in the 2008 Olympics with a gold medal in the middle weight division. In his route to the title, he defeated formidable opposition. He went on later to become the IBF champion in the same weight category.
