Abstract: First paragraph: At the 2012 Olympics in London, boxing will be a competition open to female athletes for the first time in the modern Olympic Games' 116-year history. Boxing has been the last "bastion of masculinity" within the Olympic context and the inclusion of women's boxing means that all Summer Olympic sports open to men are now also open to women. The only two remaining Olympic sports with a gender bias are synchronised swimming and rhythmic gymnastics: only women are allowed to compete, whereas men are excluded.
