Indian boxers secure historic nine Olympic quotas from Asian Qualifiers
World Championships bronze medallist Manish Kaushik (63kg) won a historic ninth Tokyo quota for India at the Asian/Oceanian Olympic Qualifiers to help India achieve their highest-ever haul of Olympic quotas in boxing, surpassing the eight they had earned at the 2012 London Games. The nine quotas also ensured that this was India’s highest ever qualification from a single qualifier.
The other 8 quotas have been brought home by Mary Kom (51kg), Amit Panghal (52kg), Pooja Rani (75kg), Ashish Kumar (75kg), Simranjit Kaur (60kg), Satish Kumar (+91kg), Vikas Krishan (69kg) and Lovlina Borgohain (69kg). India has a chance to add further with the boxers, who failed in their quest at the Asian Qualifiers, getting one more opportunity to realize their Olympic dream at the World Qualifiers to be held in Paris in May.
