Chantelle Cameron secured a top spot on the podium at the annual Nations Cup in Serbia last week, as she represented the GB Boxing women's squad along with team mate Lisa Whiteside and five England representatives.
After a tricky first round against tough and experienced Frenchwoman Estelle Mossely, Northampton 22-year-old Cameron got 2014 off to a strong start with a fourth win in as many contests.
There were also gold medals for England Juniors Ebonie Jones and Chantelle Reid, with Jones comprehensively defeating Russian Anna Krasnoperova and Reid beating Anna Anfinogenova, also of Russia, to clinch gold.
England Junior Melissa Hall reached the second round of preliminaries where she was defeated by Alena Tokarchurk of Russia, but Youth boxer Ashleigh Pond struggled to get into her stride in her first contest, against Algerian Zahra Bouarour. Elite boxer Laura Kelly received a bye to the semi finals, where she lost to Russian boxer Irina Safarova.
