With the Olympics less than a year away, organisers are ramping up their preparations with a series of test events in some of the venues which will host the action during the Games.
School Reporters Chloe and Lauren from Deansfield Community School in Wolverhampton got the chance to report on the opening day of boxing test event.
Their school had already begun reporting on Olympic boxing after learning that the Dominica boxing team will be training at a boxing club round the corner from their school.
And they followed up the story by travelling to London for the day, working along side BBC West Midlands reporter Ben Godfrey.
This report was first broadcast on BBC Midlands Today on Friday 25 November 2011.
