Golden Girl // Claressa "T-Rex" Shields

This week in London, Claressa put her stamp on history.  She will forever have a place in digital history books for years to come. She is the youngest and the first woman boxer to win a Gold Medal at 165lbs. This goes down as one of the biggest moments in sports. She's a fighter, she's a believer, and she's now an inspiration to millions of people around the world. From the basement at Berston Gym in Flint, MI to the Olympic Podium in London, England, Claressa "T-Rex" Shields is our Golden Girl!!!

      I am so proud of T- REX. It was my honor to help show
      That women are truly wonderful.

      I was so thrilled to watch our T-REX accomplish her GOLDEN GOAL! She did a great job in the ring doing what she had to do - that made all the time in the gym show so well in the ring! You listened to your Coach and did what you have trained so hard for, Clarissa. Now all you have to do is to keep doing what you do best - follow your dream.

      I've never been to Flint but I do know you have a fabulous son from Flint by the name of Michael Moore. I enjoyed a wonderful talk with Michael here in the City of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

      Now Flint has two very notable and world class citizens - possible more but those are the two I know of.

      I live about an hour south of Flint & believe the city, which desperately needs some good news, just won the lottery in Ms. Shields. With her gold medal, big smile, and a movie being made about her, I hope she turns
      all this notoriety into something wonderful for her future and the future of Flint, Michigan. I am very proud
      to be associated with Claressa ... even if it's only as a lowly investor in her film.
