Olympic boxer Fuchs determined to win her fight against OCD

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Ginny Fuchs’ obsessive-compulsive disorder sometimes compels her to use a dozen toothbrushes a night and to buy hundreds of dollars of cleaning products per week. Yet Fuchs is headed to Tokyo to compete in the Olympic boxing tournament, where she realizes it’s almost impossible to avoid touching the blood, sweat and spit of her opponents. Fuchs sees the contradictions in taking her condition into the chaos of a boxing ring. Her OCD is an all-consuming force that has affected almost every area of her life, yet it’s somehow wildly overmatched by Fuchs’ desire for gold.
