The International Boxing Association ( IBA) has showered laudatory words on Indian boxers for their unprecedented haul of three gold and four bronze medals at the recently concluded Delhi Commonwealth Games, saying that their performance was “absolutely outstanding.”

IBA President Ching Kuo Wu, who was in Delhi during the Games to witness the boxing bouts, said he was impressed with what he saw of India both inside and outside the ring. “It was very pleasant to witness such a performance from the Indian boxers which was absolutely outstanding,” Dr Wu said in a letter of appreciation to the Indian Boxing Federation.

Suranjoy Singh (52kg), Manoj Kumar (64kg) and Paramjeet Samota (91kg) were the gold medallists for India, while Vijender Singh (75kg), Amandeep Singh (49kg), Jai Bhagwan (60kg) and Dilbag Singh (69kg) had to be contented with the bronze medals after losing the semis.

This was India’s best-ever medal haul at the Games, two better then the previous edition in Melbourne where the country fetched just one gold. Dr Wu also praised the organisation of the Games, the build-up to which had been marred by various controversies.

“I would like to congratulate you that the CWG in India has now ended with success. I was very impressed by the preparation for the boxing competitions and the venue which was professionally equipped,” he said. “I would also like to extend my most sincere appreciation for the hard work and effort from the people who have been involved in the preparation work with you. I must also say that the volunteers were indeed one of the most valuable contributors to the success of this event,” he added.

The IBA boss said the response of the fans for the boxing matches was also impressive. Boxing was one amongst the many soldout events at the Games with all days of the competition being declared soldout in the 2700-capacity Talkatora Stadium.

“I could really feel the passion from the people in India and their determination for hosting such exciting games,” he said.

“Thank you once again for delivering a successful event and all the arrangement and warm hospitality extended to me during my stay. I sincerely wish you every success in your endeavour,” he added.

Hi, I’m Devesh D. Bhuwad from Mumbai. 21 years old, I have completed my BSc from Ruia College, Mumbai and intend to pursue an MBA. Currently I am in search of work as well. Writing was always my hobby since childhood wrote almost on anything but never had the brains to make a blog! And at the same time cricket was my passion. Grew up watching Sachin Tendulkar play, couldn’t be anywhere near to him though! So started writing on Cricket and at the same time other sports like Football, Tennis, Badminton and the very much hyped IPL urged me to write on them as well. And here I am, having found a perfect platform at www.thesportsmirror.com to share my articles to the world as a Freelance Content writer and in a way gain experience of contributing to a newly hosted website rather a venture which I’m sure will definitely help me in the future.
