For seven years, amateur boxers and close friends Ariane Fortin and Mary Spencer have fought side by side in different weight categories on Canada’s national team, winning numerous world championships and taking the international boxing scene by storm. But that is all about to change with the much anticipated, historic announcement by the International Olympic Committee that women’s boxing will finally be included in the upcoming 2012 London Games. Both women are thrilled at the chance to achieve their Olympic dream, until they discover they will have to compete against each other for the single spot on the Canadian team open in their now-shared weight category. Is this the end of their friendship and the beginning of a fierce rivalry? Last Woman Standing is a riveting look into the hearts and minds of two dedicated, strong, and determined young women as they prepare both mentally and physically for some of the most difficult fights of their careers.
