If Maria Bahe is successful, she will become the first Native American woman to proudly stand on the Olympic podium with a medal. Bahe’s boxing roots can be traced back to her family’s history. Her grandfather, J. Cal Bahe, started his own boxing career at the young age of 15 and trained at Damon Boxing Gym, under the guidance of his uncle, Lee Damon.
After Damon’s death in 1980, Cal Bahe decided to shift his focus to coaching as a heartfelt tribute. Six years later, he took the lead in creating the Damon-Bahe Boxing gym in Chinle, Arizona. He passed on his knowledge of boxing to the younger generation, including his son John C. Bahe Jr, who is Mariah’s father.
Today, Mariah carries on the family tradition, a symbol of the lasting resilience of the sport of boxing that brings this incredible family together through multiple generations. While her father initially encouraged her to pursue cheerleading or volleyball as a child, Mariah displayed her talent for boxing at just five years old and has since been honing her skills in the family gym with her Coach-Dad. The coach proudly sports a “Team Princess” shirt.
