Boxer Simranjeet Kaur included in Tops

New Delhi, November 30

Four Olympics-bound Indian boxers — two men and as many women — have been included in the sports ministry’s Target Olympic Podium Scheme (TOPS), the Sports Authority of India (SAI) said today. Simranjeet Kaur (60kg), Pooja Rani (75kg) joined MC Mary Kom in the elite group. Ashish Kumar (75kg) and Satish Kumar (+91kg) have been included in a group which already featured Amit Panghal (52kg), Manish Kaushik (63kg) and Vikas Krishan (69kg) among the Tokyo-bound. Lovlina Borgohain and Kavinder Singh Bisht are also part of the core group. “Nikhat Zareen (51kg), Sonia Chahal (57kg) and Shiva Thapa (63kg) were moved to the TOPS Developmental group from the Core Group,” the SAI stated. Zareen participates in the same weight category as Mary Kom, while Thapa competes with Kaushik for the 63kg slot. PTI
