SAVANNAH Marshall was today being officially unveiled in Great Britain’s boxing team.
And the Hartlepool sports personality of the year faced the media in Sheffield on cloud nine after picking up a hat-trick of further awards.
That the recently crowned world champion won Headland ABC’s outstanding boxer trophy, the shield for best senior fighter and the cup for most wins at her home club’s presentation night was no surprise.
In fact, it would have been a surprise if she hadn’t.
But chief Headland coach Tim Coulter says no amount of medals and silverware will change the girl who is the planet’s best middleweight and favourite for gold at London 2012.
“I don’t think she will ever change, she’s so quiet and unassuming,” Coulter told SportMail.
“When she had just got back from the worlds with her gold medal but when we got back in the bus she never talked about herself.
“The first thing she said was ‘I see Sadie had another win’.
“That’s Savannah. She’s more comfortable talking about others rather than herself.”
The 21-year-old received her prizes from the Headland club, former World Cadet silver medallist Mick Hadfield handing them over.
