Shiva Thapa wins Gold, Devendro wins Silver and Manoj wins Bronze Medal at Asian Athletics Championship

Posted by Siva Kumar Ari
Indian Boxers Made India Proud by winning Medals at the Asian Athletics Championship . The event is currently held at Pune , India . Indian Boxers namely Shiva Thapa won Gold Medal , Devendro won Silver Medal and Manoj won Bronze Medal at Asian Athletics Championship.




But there was disappointment for Commonwealth Games gold medallist Manoj Kumar (64kg) in the semi-finals of the light welter weight division. Pitted against London Olympics bronze medallist Uranchimegiin Monkh-Erdene of Mongolia, Kumar gave his opponent a run for his money. But in the end the 26-year-old came up short against the Mongolian in what was a fight to the finish. He will have to be content with a bronze medal performance from the tournament.

National Coach GS Sandhu was extremely pleased with the performance of all the Indian boxers in the tournament . Hearty Congratulations to all of them and the players were also associated with Olympic Gold Quest which is one of the leading Sponsor for Indian Athletes
