At the age of 11, Shields was finally allowed to being boxing after wanting to do so for multiple years. Shields began her career by winnings two Junior Olympic championships and after winning the title at the National Police Athletic League Championships, she earned a spot at the Olympic trials. After a few rules changes for the first ever female boxing competition in Olympic history, Shields narrowly earned a spot at the 2012 Olympic games in London. After piling up some impressive wins, including one over three-time defending world champion Mary Spencer, Shields made it to the gold medal round where she defeated Russian Nadezda Torlopova. In 2016, she followed up by becoming the first American Olympian to win back-to-back gold medals in boxing.
