Thapa, Pooja win Gold at Olympic Test event
cancel

Friday : Shiva Thapa (63kg) and Pooja Rani (75kg) clinched Gold medals with impressive wins, while Ashish (69kg) settled for a Silver as India ended with a decent haul of seven medals at the Olympic Test Event for Boxing here on Thursday.

The other four medals are Bronze owing to semifinal losses of Nikhat Zareen (51kg), Simranjeet Kaur (60kg) Sumit Sangwan (91kg) and Vahlimpuia (75kg) on Wednesday.

Four-time Asian medallist Thapa out-punched Kazakhstan’s national champion and Asian Bronze-winner Sanatali Toltayev 5-0 to claim the top honours.

Former Asian Games bronze-medallist Rani edged past Australia’s Caitlin Parker in a split 4-1 decision to ensure that the Indian women’s contingent also had a Gold in its kitty.

Asian Bronze-medallist Ashish (69kg), however, lost to Japan’s Sewon Okazawa to sign off with a Silver medal. The Indian went down in a 1-4 judgement.

“Shiva has matured quite a lot in the last one year and this is showing in the way he is performing. He has been in tremendous form and will continue to grow,” national coach C A Kuttappa said.

“Ashish too is developing into a good boxer. His transition from youth to senior level has been very smooth,” he added.
