Skye Nicolson at the Tokyo Olympics

Welcome Home Skye! 

Skye Nicolson has returned home to much fanfare. 
She accomplished a lot and the Clan is very proud of her!

Clan MacNicol is proud to announce that one of its own, Skye Nicolson, daughter of Allan and Pat Nicolson, will represent Australia in the 2020 Olympic Games in the featherweight boxing event.  The 2020 games were delayed due to COVID but will take place from 23 July through 8 Aug 2021 in Tokyo, Japan.  

Skye, a resident of Brisbane, began boxing at age 12 and started competing eight months later.  She is being coached by her brother Allan Nicolson.  Her older brothers Jamie and Gavin died in a car accident in 1994, the year before Skye was born. Gavin was age 10 at the time, while Jamie was age 22 and had already represented Australia in boxing at the 1990 Commonwealth Games in Auckland, New Zealand and the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona.   

She competed in the featherweight event at the 2018 Commonwealth Games held in Gold Coast, Queensland defeating Northern Ireland's Michaela Walsh by a split decision and winning the gold medal. 
In 2018 she won the Outstanding Woman in Sports Award from the Australian Women's Health, Women in Sports Awards.
In 2015 and 2016 she was named Boxer of the Year by Boxing Queensland in Australia.

Skye won her first bout against South Korea, but lost her quarter final bout by the smallest of split decisions. She’s now aiming for Paris in 2024!  That's the winning spirit!

The Chief of Clan MacNicol and the members of the Clan worldwide are very proud of Skye's accomplishments as is all of Australia!
