[Luo Wei] of China had been World Champion in 2003 in the middleweight class (72 kg.). Rather than trying to move up to the heavyweights, she dropped weight to compete in the 67 kg. class at AthÃna. She was the favorite and did win the gold medal, but not as easily as expected. In the second round, she defeated [Nina Solheim] (NOR) by TKO. But her other early matches were won only by scores of 10-8 and 5-3. The final match was against [Elli Mystakidou] of Greece, the 2002 European welterweight silver medalist, who was urged on by the Greek crowd, but Luo won a narrow victory, 7-6.
