SHIVA THAPA (60 Kg)

Date of birth: 8-12-1993
Place of birth: Guwahati, Assam
Stance: Orthodox

It has been an incredible rise for the Guwahati lad as he became the youngest Indian to qualify for the Olympics when he featured in the 2012 edition of the quadrennial event in London. Shiva was also the youngest boxer from India to win a Gold medal at the 2013 Asian Championships which was held in Amman, Jordan.

Youngest amongst the six siblings, Shiva had boxing in his blood. His brother is a silver medallist boxer at the 33rd Guwahati Nationals. Following his footsteps, Shiva has now scaled immense success and is one of the sought-after boxers in India.

Thapa has continued his good work, garnering a podium finish in almost all the international

events he has participated in in recent times. With two bronze medals in 2018, one in India Open International and one at the Ulaanbaatar Cup, Thapa started 2019 with a silver medal from the Gee Bee Boxing Tournament and went on to win a consecutive fourth medal at the Asian Championships and became the only player to earn a feat of this stature.
