The Living Nightmare: "This year, for the first time, women's boxing is an Olympic event, and many regard the 27-year-old Quanitta Underwood as America's best hope for a medal...Underwood, of course, covets a gold medal and the fame that would come with it. "I want to take that ride," she says. "I want to be a household name." But beyond that, she wants to be a symbol of hope to anyone who has ever been sexually abused, though to do so requires something harder for her than a thousand hours of hitting the heavy bag. She has to talk about what happened." [New York Times]
