Mandeep wins Gold

New Delhi, June 24:
Mandeep Jangra (69kg) was the lone Indian boxer to claim a gold medal among the five finalists but the country’s contingent gave a fine account of itself in the summit clashes of the Ulaanbaatar Cup in Mongolia today.
“I have won an international gold medal after a long time and I hope it would count for something in getting me selected for the Asian Games,” Mandeep, a former Commonwealth Games silver-medallist, told PTI from Ulaanbaatar.
The silver medals went to both the women finalists Sonia Lather (57kg) and Lovlina Borgohain (69kg) and Himanshu Sharma (49kg) and Etash Khan (56kg). All the four boxers fought their hearts out but failed to find favour with judges.(PTI)
