=== Britain's Joshua is Olympic super heavyweight champion ===
London, England (Sports Network) - Great Britain's Anthony Joshua won the
super heavyweight final Sunday for his country's fifth boxing medal of the
London Olympics, and third gold.
Joshua won the bout by countback after rallying for an 8-5 score in the third
round to tie reigning Olympic champion Roberto Cammarelle of Italy at 18-18.
It was Britain's second gold medal at the weight, the first country to do
that. It was the host country's 29th gold medal of the London Games.
Cammarelle, after losing by the tiebreaker, thought the judges got it wrong.
"I feel I've lost even though I got a silver medal to go along with the gold
in Beijing and the bronze in Athens," he said.
