Boxers Encourage Palm Islanders to Excel

Noby Clay won her fight at the Australian Amateur Boxing League national titles and encourages Palm Island youth to step up and aim high.

Clay is in Sydney with Palm Island’s all-Aboriginal boxing team for the Message Sticks Indigenous Film Festival, which opened at the Sydney Opera House last night.

She stars in the boxing documentary for Palm Island, which follows young fighters who use the sport to counter Palm Island’s troubled reputation.

Clay’s trainer, Ray Dennis, has trained 37 Australian champions since arriving on Palm Island 11 years ago and hopes to take a group of boxers along with Clay to the 2012 London Olympics where no boxer has won a gold medal for Australia and he wants the first to be from Palm Island.
