Guwahati: India topped the medals' chart after claiming five gold medals on the final day of the AIBA World Women's Youth Boxing Championships here on Sunday.

Nitu, Jyoti, Sakshi, Shashi Chopra and Ankushita Boro clinched the yellow metals. India earlier had also won two bronze medals. It was the biggest medal haul in the championship, followed by Russia (2 gold, 4 silver).
