In the fourth episode of the Women Box podcast, we spend some time with boxers who have trained for years to compete in the U.S. Olympic Team Trials and have dreamed for years of going to the 2012 Games in London. Boxers train their bodies to fight and train their minds to believe they can win. But in this episode, Tiffanie Hearn of San Diego loses by a point. Alex Love underestimates her opponent. Others lose their chance to compete because of injuries.
