Indian boxers had a record-breaking outing at the Youth World Boxing Championships in Poland as seven Indian Female boxers secured Gold Medals last day taking the total medal tally to eleven.
Gitika (48kg), Naorem Babyrojisana Chanu (51kg), Poonam (57kg), Vinka (60kg), Arundhati Choudhary (69kg), T Sanamacha Chanu (75kg), and Alfiya Pathan (+81kg) who were the female boxers in action last day, secured gold medals in their respective final matches ensuring a complete sweep for the nation.
With the win, the women’s team also managed to finish as the number 1 team in the championship edging out Russia who came in second.
Elsewhere, Sachin, who is the lone Indian male boxer in the final, will be fighting today for the Gold Medal. Earlier, the likes of Bishwamitra Chongthom (49kg), Ankit Narwal (64kg), and Vishal Gupta (91kg) had secured bronze medals for the nation as well.
“This has been an amazing effort from our youth boxers especially when the players had to be confined at home for the most part of the last year and only make do with online training sessions. Our coaches and support staff did a stellar job despite the limitations and challenges. I congratulate all the winners on this unprecedented medal haul. This achievement is a testament to the talent we have in the upcoming generation of Indian boxing,” Boxing Federation of India President, Ajay Singh noted.
