Tokyo 2020: Lovlina Borgohain secures 2nd medal for India, marches into semis

Young Indian boxer Lovlina Borgohain secured a second medal for India at the Tokyo Olympics with win over Chinese Taipei’s Nein-Chin Chen in the women’s welterweight category (64-69kg) on July 30.

Lovlina, making her Olympics debut at Tokyo, has marched into the semifinals, assuring India of at least a bronze medal as both losing semifinalists are assured a medal.

However, India and Lovlina will be hoping for much more as she heads into the boxing semifinals.

Earlier in the day, boxer Simranjit Kaur (60kg) lost to Thailand’s Sudaporn Seesondee in the pre-quarterfinals to make an early exit from the Olympic Games.
