With his bronze medal in the flyweight division at the worlds last October in Azerbaijan, Rau'shee Warren, a 25-year-old Cincinnati native, became the first U.S. boxer to qualify for three Olympic teams. In 2004, as a light flyweight and the youngest fighter in Athens, he failed to medal. He won gold as a flyweight at the '07 worlds and entered the Beijing Games as the favorite, but he lost a controversial decision in his first bout and came home with nothing. The father of two heads to London hoping that the third time is the charm.
