Jaismine Lamboria, a medalist in the Commonwealth Games, and Arundhati Chaudhary, a former Youth World Champion, secured national titles in the Olympic weight categories of 60kg and 66kg, respectively, at the Elite Senior Women’s National Boxing Championships on Wednesday. Jaismine emerged victorious against Olympian Simranjit Kaur, a two-time Asian Championship medalist, while Arundhati defeated Ankushita Boro of Assam in the final of the 66kg category. In the 60kg final, despite Simranjit winning the bout 3-2 in the initial decision, Jaismine was declared the winner after a review. The reviewers favored Jaismine with a 4-3 decision, leading to disappointment for Simranjit.

The boxer from Punjab took control of the match, skillfully delivering a series of hooks and jabs. Although Jaismine faced difficulties in the first round, she showed a remarkable performance in the third round, landing effective blows. Jaismine struggled to respond to the relentless onslaught of hooks and jabs from her opponent. In the 66kg category, Arundhati Chaudhary overcame the disappointment of the 2022 Asian Games, defeating Ankushita Boro to claim victory.

India has yet to secure Olympic quota positions in the 60kg and 66kg weight categories for the 2024 Paris Olympics. The Railway Sports Promotion Board (RSPB) emerged as the top-performing team, earning eight medals, including five golds. Meanwhile, Haryana claimed the runner-up position. RSPB’s boxers, Anamika (50kg), Jyoti (52kg), Shiksha (54kg), Sonia Lather (57kg), and Nupur (+81kg), all secured gold medals in their respective weight classes. Haryana’s representatives, including reigning World Champion in Boxing, Saweety Boora (81kg), Pooja Rani (two-time Asian Championships gold medallist), Gitika (48kg), and Prachi (63kg), also achieved gold medal victories.
