Kaye Scott (boxing) displayed all her champion qualities to win light-middleweight silver medal at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham. Australia’s first lady of boxing once again had her ambitions ruined by Rosie Eccles of Wales, who beat her in the welterweight semi-final on the Gold Coast four years earlier. The 38-year-old was among a select few female boxers at their third Commonwealth Games in Birmingham and also joined Tony Madigan (1954, 1958, 1962) as the only Australian boxers to go to three Commonwealth Games. Scott, who was part of the first-ever sanctioned women’s boxing match in NSW in 2009, has also represented Australia at six world championships where her silver at 75kg in 2016 remains the best result by an Australian boxer – male or female – at the world championships. Kaye played netball competitively and was an accomplished dancer through her high school years before starting boxing classes at the local gym to keep fit. Kaye has a degree in human movement from the University of Technology, Sydney as well as a diploma of education. She works as a personal trainer and trains under 2002 Commonwealth Games and Athens 2004 Olympic representative Jamie Pittman in Gosford on the NSW central coast.
