NEW YORK -- Claressa Shields did a cartwheel in the ring after winning her second Olympic boxing gold medal in Rio, and shes not done being honored quite yet.Shields and water polo goaltender Ashleigh Johnson were recognized as Sportswomen of the Year at the Womens Sports Foundations annual dinner Wednesday night.Shields received the individual honor sporting an updated tattoo on her right biceps. The image has the Olympic rings with the words Rio and London, and she added Au, which stands for gold on the periodic table, after defending her middleweight title in Rio.The 21-year-old Shields will decide in the coming years if she wants to add Tokyo for the 2020 Games.Im back in the gym, trying to figure out whats the best move next, Shields said. Im taking my time with that. I have a couple of different options. I can go pro or stay amateur for 2020.Johnson earned the award in the team competition. She had 51 saves in Rio, including nine in the final against Italy, as the Americans won their second consecutive Olympic gold medal.It was definitely a perfect ending to all the work and effort and sacrifices we made in the past 1? years, Johnson said. It was a big thing to carry on the legacy.A senior at Princeton, Johnson hopes to lead the Tigers to the NCAA tournament next spring. The water polo team just missed the tournament while the 6-foot-1 goalie was training for Rio.Big East commissioner Val Ackerman won the Billie Jean King Contribution Award. King, who won 39 Grand Slam titles in her tennis career, created the Womens Sports Foundation in 1974. The foundation provides travel and training grants and community-based sports opportunities.Pakistani pro squash player Maria Toorpakai Wazir, who moved to Canada after receiving death threats from the Taliban, earned the Wilma Rudolph Courage Award.Shields became the first U.S. boxer to win consecutive gold medals in an Olympic sport that added women in 2012.Shes training and getting acclimated in her new place in Boynton Beach, Florida. The native of Flint, Michigan, spent the year before Rio at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado. She moved to Florida three weeks ago.I love it here, just got my furniture, she said. I like the vibe and the people down here. Theyre very family-oriented and this place just makes me happy.In the gold-medal match in Rio, Shields was faster and stronger than her taller Dutch opponent Nouchka Fontijn. Shields, who wore Superman knee socks, encouraged Fontijn in the fourth round to put up a better fight.I didnt mean to taunt her in the last round, Shields said. When I fight with my hands down, its more letting her think she has opportunities and a shot when she doesnt.Shields owns a 77-1 record, won two world championship titles and spars mostly against men.If you want to get the best out of me, you have to let me fully perform, she said. The guys cant hold back on me, so you end up going 100 percent. Theres a bunch of guys who wanted to prove a point, and they couldnt.Shields, who threw out the first pitch at a Detroit Tigers game last month, has a film about her life in the works through Universal Pictures. Barry Jenkins, the director of Moonlight, recently signed on to write the script.Im not done yet, Shields said. I have this hunger to do more and be bigger and be more known and get womens boxing on the course of being respected by everybody. Boyd Gordon Jersey . That gave fans outside Joe Louis Arena another chance to ask for autographs from the 19-year-old whose stardom in the NHL has arrived earlier than most expected. Connor McDavid Jersey . Third-seeded Murray had the easiest path to victory on New Years Eve, barely breaking a sweat during his 6-0, 6-0 win over 2,129th-ranked Qatari wildcard recipient Mousa Shanan Zayed. http://www.wholesaleoilersjerseys.com/ . John Tavares, Thomas Vanek and Kyle Okposo were also being counted on to slow down sizzling Rangers forward Rick Nash. That plan didnt go so well early. Andrew Ference Jersey . Pence singled in the winning run with no outs in the ninth inning to give the Giants a 7-6 victory over the San Diego Padres on Sunday. Cheap Oilers Jerseys Online . -- Yogi Ferrell orchestrates pretty much everything in Indianas offence.Rebecca Adlington believes Great Britains Olympic swimming team can claim a decent haul of medals in Rio this summer. There are just 80 days to go until the Games and double Olympic gold medallist Adlington has high hopes for the British swimming squad.The swimming team are looking so good, Adlington told Sportswomen on Sky Sports News HQ. Youve obviously got Adam Peaty, James Guy and Siobhan-Marie OConnor - I really hope she gets a medal - and then Jazz Carlin and youve also got people like Fran Halsall on the team.  We could see four to six medals as we have never really had that depth before. Hopefully if we are all on form, touch wood, we can pick up a lot of medals.World champions Peaty and Guy headline a 26-strong Team GB Olympic squad for Brazil which was selected following last months National Championships in Glasgow. The English pair will make their Olympic debuts in Rio, as will Welsh Commonwealth champion Carlin. Head coach Bill Furniss (left) and some of the GB swimmers (Siobhan-Marie OConnor centre) Sky Academy Sports Scholar OConnor also secured her spot on the team last month, but this will be the second Games for OConnor, who won World Championship bronze in the 200m individual medley in Russia last summer.Adlington has backed 20-year-old OConnor to perform well in Brazil, saying: We are going to see her go in the 200m in the medley and hopefully she can do well. She is in a tough event but she has a shot at a medal here.She has become a smart athlete with the way she races.dddddddddddd Shes a gutsy swimmer and thats what I love about her, she just gives it her all. She is such a passionate swimmer so hopefully she can pick up a medal in Rio. OConnor competes in the womens 200m individual medley at the British Swimming Championships in Glasgow Adlington was also full of praise for four-time Paralympic champion Ellie Simmonds.She said: With Ellie nothing is impossible, thats what Ive learnt. She is a hard worker who really wants to push herself and she wants to push for world records, not just for medals. I think she is going to be a huge success in the summer. Ellie Simmonds, four-time Paralympic champion Team GB will be looking to improve on a very disappointing Olympics at London in 2012 where the British swimmers failed to achieve their Olympic medal target of five, winning one silver and two bronzes, both of which went to Adlington.However, hopes for the summer will be high after a youthful squad achieved a record-breaking haul of medals at the 2015 World Championships in Kazan.
