Vin Huang looks at her mobile phone as she travel on the subway on the way to her boxing training class in Shanghai December 8, 2014. Women have boxed as long as the sport has existed but for years they were relegated out of national and international competitions in many countries around the world. Female boxers entered the ring in an exhibition match at the 1904 Olympic Games, but it was more than a century later when they were given the green light to make their Olympic debut in London in 2012. In China, although there is a long history of lightweight Chinese fighters, the sport is not very popular among women. However in 2010, Gong Jin, a woman who has trained since she was 12 years old, founded Princess Women's Boxing Club, the first "only for women" boxing club in China. Today more than 100 students between the ages of 18 and 40 train at the small studio in downtown Shanghai. Picture taken on December 8, 2014.

Boxing gloves are seen by a window at Princess Women's Boxing Club in Shanghai 
A pair of boxing gloves are seen by a window at Princess Women's Boxing Club in Shanghai December 3, 2014. Women have boxed as long as the sport has existed but for years they were relegated out of national and international competitions in many countries around the world. Female boxers entered the ring in an exhibition match at the 1904 Olympic Games, but it was more than a century later when they were given the green light to make their Olympic debut in London in 2012. In China, although there is a long history of lightweight Chinese fighters, the sport is not very popular among women. However in 2010, Gong Jin, a woman who has trained since she was 12 years old, founded Princess Women's Boxing Club, the first "only for women" boxing club in China. Today more than 100 students between the ages of 18 and 40 train at the small studio in downtown Shanghai. Picture taken on December 3, 2014.

Asada, 23, the only woman to have landed three of the complicated triple Axel jumps in competition, is a prime contender for gold at the Sochi Games, where she will again face long-standing rival and reigning Olympic champion Kim Yuna of South Korea. Yet as recently as 2012 Asada thought about quitting, following several uneven seasons of changing her skating style from the bottom up in the wake of losing gold to Kim at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, as well as her mother's sudden death.

Furniture in the kitchen of Tatiana Skiba stands at a crooked angle after a landslide damaged her house on Bakinskaya Street in Sochi, October 7, 2013. In 2010, a landslide made the house where Skiba was living uninhabitable, so her family moved into a new one next door, which was still under construction. That house is also badly damaged. Skiba blames the landslide on a dump further up the hill that is used by a construction company, involved in Sochi's pre-Olympic Games building boom. She says the city authorities deny any connection between the landslide and the dump. Spending on the 2014 Winter Olympics in the Russian Black Sea resort of Sochi is expected to pass $50 billion, and the Games are a priority for President Vladimir Putin who wants to use them to showcase the country's modern face to the world over two decades after the fall of the Soviet Union. But locals have expressed concern about various difficulties they are facing as the city gears up for the Olympics, ranging from disruption to a local water supply, to damage to housing.
