Olympic Test Event Boxing: Shiva Thapa, Pooja Rani clinch gold, Ashish settles for silver

Indian pugilists Shiva Thapa and Pooja Rani today clinched gold medals, while Ashish settled for a silver, as India ended with a decent haul of seven medals at the Olympic Test Event for Boxing in Tokyo, Japan.

The other four medals, all bronze were bagged by Nikhat Zareen, Simranjeet Kaur,  Sumit Sangwan and Vahlimpuia in their respective weight categories.

Four-time Asian medallist Thapa outpunched Kazakhstan’s national champion and Asian bronze-winner Sanatali Toltayev 5-0 to claim the top honours in 63 kilogram category.

Former Asian Games bronze-medallist  Pooja Rani edged past Australia’s Caitlin Parker in 75 kilogram category to ensure that the Indian women’s contingent also had a gold in its kitty.

In 69 kilogram category, Ashish, however, lost to Japan’s Sewon Okazawa to sign off with a silver medal
