Despite a lack of experience, Team GB can still dominate the boxing medals in Rio as they did at London 2012, according to performance director Rob McCracken. Dede Westbrook Womens Jersey .As hosts, Britain claimed five boxing medals at the previous Olympic Games with Nicola Adams, Luke Campbell and Anthony Joshua winning gold, Fred Evans taking silver and Anthony Ogogo securing bronze.Seven of the squad for Rio 2016 are 23 years old or younger with only Adams and Savannah Marshall, Britains two representatives in the womens competition, having Olympic experience.I can assure you none of them will freeze, we have enough experience with this team to know their character, said McCracken.In fairness, we had one boxer in London who was a little bit young and probably phased her a little bit, that was Savannah, it was well documented, but she was young and she has moved on since then. She got the bronze at the world championships recently.I dont think we will have the same problem with this group, theyre more mature than the one or two youngsters who went to London.Britain will have one representative in each of the 10 weight classes in the mens competition for Rio.It has the same potential as 2012, added McCracken. With the exception of Nicola Adams and Joe Joyce, and possibly Savannah Marshall, it doesnt have a vastly experienced set of Olympic standard boxers.Prior to London we had Andrew Selby, Fred Evans, who were European champions, and Luke Campbell, who was European champion and world silver medalist. We have Joe Cordina in the team who became European champion a year ago and Joe Joyce.But as a 10-man male team it is a better quality for us. Whereas Luke Campbell, Fred Evans and Andrew Selby were exceptional, we dont have that experience for Rio, but we certainly have the potential within the group.If you look at London we qualified seven men, weve been able to qualify all 10 men this time. It has been difficult but it shows the potential to catch the judges eye, to beat good opponents.For example, Lawrence Okolie beat the world No.3 in qualifications tournaments in Turkey and won the gold medal.Some have been fast-tracked, like Kal Yafai and Larence Okolie, and they have stepped up because they are mentally mature and they believe in themselves and with the job we have done here we have been able to fast-track them. Both won gold in the qualification tournament.Men: Galal Yafai (light-flyweight); Muhammad Ali (flyweight); Qais Ashfaq (bantamweight); Joe Cordina (lightweight); Pat McCormack (light-welterweight); Josh Kelly (welterweight); Antony Fowler (middleweight); Joshua Buatsi (light-heavyweight); Lawrence Okolie (heavyweight); Joe Joyce (super-heavyweight).Women: Nicola Adams (flyweight); Savannah Marshall (middleweight). Dawuane Smoot Womens Jersey .

Boston College has a decent-looking new uniform set, although the pants striping -- something being worn by more and more Under Armour-outfitted schools -- feels like an unnecessary addition.
