The Olympic Committee has yet to decide whether to let Washington native Queen Underwood box in the Olympics, but they did give the go-ahead to Clarissa Shields.

Shields lost to England's Svanna Marshall last week at the Women's World Championships in China. Despite the loss the she still qualified to fight in London this summer.

This marks the first time women's boxing has been made a medal event at the Olympics.

Underwood, from Seattle, lost in the World Championships and is still waiting to hear whether the Olympic Committee will let her compete.
