Local boxers competing to make the U.S. Olympic team

ALBANY, NY (NEWS10) – Some local boxers are making progress on their road to Rio.

If UAlbany student Brandon Lynch, who has taken time off for training, wins at Saturday night’s finals in the Olympic trials in Reno, he will be the U.S. Olympic team’s Super Heavyweight.

Thomas Blumenfeld, who is competing in the trials in Montreal, posted on his Facebook page that he will be representing the Canadian Olympic team in the Fly weight division.

Both young men have been learning the ropes by training at Albany’s very own boxing gym on Quail Street.
