Labour MP for Caerphilly, Wayne David, has congratulated Lauren Price from Ystrad Mynach for her selection for Team GB to represent her country at the Tokyo Olympics.
Lauren will be the number one seeded boxer in the middleweight category at the event after a powerful gold medal victory at the Boxing Road to Tokyo Olympic qualifying in Paris in June 2021.
She has had previous success with gold and bronze medals at the Commonwealth and European games and is an all-round sportsperson, with more than 100 football games for Cardiff City FC’s women’s team and 52 international caps for Wales.
Wayne David said “I am delighted that Lauren has been selected for Team GB. This is a wonderful achievement and I’m sure that everyone in Ystrad Mynach and the Caerphilly Borough as a whole will be wishing her well and urging her success.
“The Olympic and Paralympic Games are among the world’s greatest events, and these games specifically will provide a chance for the country to come together after an incredibly difficult 18 months, and to cheer on our athletes.”
