Ginny Fuchs is an American flyweight boxer and southpaw from Houston, Texas, as well as the current team captain for USA Boxing (the national governing body for Olympic-style amateur boxing overseen by the United States Olympic Committee and the International Boxing Association).
Fuchs holds a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology from LSU and tried out boxing her sophomore year of college as a way to stay in shape. She trained for just one year before winning her first bout.
After she started entering boxing tournaments, her stock quickly rose and she qualified for the 2012 Olympic Trials. Ginny ultimately finished fourth in the Olympic Trails which fueled her drive to reach the 2016 Olympics in Brazil—and now, the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.
A winner of multiple tournaments, Ginny has also been a finalist in the U.S. National Tournament in 2013, 2014, & 2015. She won the championship bout in the 112-pound flyweight division of the 2016 U.S. Olympic boxing trials in October 2015. In December 2019, she will compete in the 2020 Olympic trials.
