Toyota Ireland is to provide a Toyota Auris to double world and four-times European boxing champion Katie Taylor for the next three years as she prepares for the London Olympics in 2012.
Taylor was crowned world boxing champion in 2007 and 2008, and successfully defended her fourth European title in 2009.
She has also captained the Irish women’s soccer team. Taylor has represented her county at the highest level of both sports and was recognised as Irish Sports Woman of the Year in 2007 and in 2008.
Speaking at the presentation of the new Toyota Auris to Taylor, the promotions and PR manager at Toyota Ireland, Ian Corbett, commented: “Katie is a fantastic role model for all young sportspeople. Her achievements to date make her one of Ireland’s most successful sport stars and we look forward to supporting her quest for Olympic glory in 2012.”
