Indian boxer Lovlina Borgohain (69kg) advanced to the quarterfinals in her debut appearance, defeating German veteran Nadine Apetz in a closely fought last-16 stage bout at Tokyo Olympics 2021 on Tuesday. Now she is one win away from winning an Olympic medal.

Lovlina Borgohain, the lone Indian boxer in action on the day, prevailed 3-2 over her rival who is 12 years her senior. Both the boxers were making their Games debut and the Indian became the first from her nine-strong team to make the quarterfinal stage.

The 23-year-old showed great poise in a tense contest to triumph by the thinnest of margins. She claimed all three rounds on split points.
The 35-year-old Abetz was the first German woman to qualify for a boxing event at the Olympics and also a two-time world championship bronze medallist and a former European champion.

Borgohain is a two-time World and Asian Championships bronze-medallist. She will next face Chinese Taipei’s Nien-Chin Chen, who is seeded fourth and a former world champion, on July 30. A win in that bout would assure Borgohain of at least a bronze medal at the mega-event.

India’s men’s doubles badminton players Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty failed to qualify for the Quarterfinals despite a win over Great Britain today. The Indian pair failed to qualify for Quarterfinals on the basis of a number of seats won. Chinese Taipei, Indonesia and India have won two matches each in their group.

Earlier, the Indian hockey team make a strong back in Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympic Games as it defeated Spain men’s team 3-0 in a Pool A match today. Indian men’s hockey team lost their previous game against Australia, which was also India’s worst defeat in Olympics history.

Meanwhile, Indian shooters continued to disappoint in Olympics 2021 as Manu Bhaker and Saurabh Chaudhary crashed out of 10m Air Pistol Mixed Team event on Day 4 of Tokyo Olympics 2021 after finishing seventh in the second stage of the qualification round.
