Adams' golden seal of approval

Having sampled the Boleyn Ground atmosphere last season, Olympic champion Nicola Adams can hardly wait to watch West Ham United at the Olympic Stadium.

Nine days after boxing her way to gold at the ExCel Arena last year, Adams took in the Hammers' 1-0 win over Aston Villa, and it seems the Club has left its mark on the 30-year-old.

Though she heralds from Leeds, Adams is clearly growing very fond of east London, not least of the Hammers' prospective new home.

Happily posing with the Club's new adidas home shirt inside the iconic venue, Adams told West Ham TV: "It's fantastic to be back, just to be here amongst all these people.

"To be here again and to hear the crowd, it's a surreal feeling and it's bringing back loads of memories from the Games."

And Adams could hardly have been more emphatic in her approval of West Ham's future occupancy of the Stadium.

She continued: "It's really, really good! I'm really excited and I'm hoping that I'll be there again as well to watch them play.

"The atmosphere's going to be really special and I'm really going to be looking forward to it."

Meanwhile, exhibiting her typically sunny outlook, Adams expressed her desire to continue inspiring the next generation, with one eye already on Rio 2016. As for her own exploits in the ring, she is as ambitious as ever, already plotting her tilt at gold at the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

"The inspiring is still going on," she explained. "I'm just hoping to keep on inspiring more kids to get involved in sport. And hopefully we'll see some really good talent through for 2016.

"I'm going to be back in the ring soon. I've just come back from the European Union Championships, I got gold there again. I've got the Commonwealth Games next year, so I'm hoping to get another first, making history and then it's onto Rio!"
