World boxing champions, Lisa O’Rourke and Amy Broadhurst,  have been named the joint winners of the Irish Tatler Women of 2022 Sports Award.

At its 22nd annual awards ceremony, Irish Tatler Magazine, a leading women’s fashion, beauty and lifestyle magazine, honoured Irish female achievement across a number of categories including sport, public life, business, fashion, music, media and literature.

In honouring Lisa and Amy, Irish Tatler said:  “What a year it has been for women in this field, competing across the globe on the track, in the ring, on the field and off it too. But in one sport in particular this year, Ireland have been truly dominant. In boxing circles, the tri-colour is revered.

“And it was in one afternoon in May, when within a half an hour, Ireland had two new World Champions, following the footsteps of only three others: Katie Taylor, Kellie Harrington and Michael Conlan.

“Those women are Lisa O’Rourke and Amy Broadhurst, our sport award winners for 2022, a year that saw them take home gold at the World Championships in Istanbul.”
