Tokyo Olympics: Boxer Lovlina Borgohain bags bronze medal

Tokyo, Aug 4 (IANS): Indian boxer Lovlina Borgohain has taken the bronze medal in women's welterweight category at the Tokyo Olympics on Wednesday August 4. 

The 23-year-old from Assam lost the semifinal in a unanimous decision to Turkish top seed Busenaz Surmeneli at the Ryogoku Kokugikan Arena.

Lovlina lost the first round 0:5 as all the judges gave the decision in favour of the Turkish boxer. Lovlina was warned and a point was deducted of her total points in the second round. In the third and final round, Lovlina was outboxed by the reigning world champion.

With a bronze medal, Lovlina became only the third Indian boxer after Vijender Singh and Mary Kom to win an Olympic medal. Lovlina had a tough Round of 16 bout against Germany's Nadine Apetz where she won via a split decision. In the quarterfinal, Lovlina punched her way into the semis with a 4:1 win over Chinese Taipei's Nien-Chin Chen.

Lovlina's bronze is India's third medal at the Tokyo Olympics.

    some one was commenting…….that this girls had the chance to win gold....if only she fought harder. For me what touched me most is..... She is our countries daughter, and we have started our journey of winning medals in Olympics. If only one fully knows, forget about winning medal at Olympics...….just being there and taking the tremendous pressure these poor athletes go through in un imaginable. As may have head that few athletes have quit the Olympics due to high pressure and unable to cope up with all the scrutiny and un reasonable expectations from their fans/country. I believe participating is itself is winning, to qualify for Olympics is not a easy task. and winning any medal is a great achievement and especially for me my countries daughters won two medals is a great achievement, I salute them- Jai Hind.
