Three boxing bronze medals for Sikkim at Indore National Rural Sports Competition



SINGTAM, JANUARY 7: Taran Pradhan from Bardang has won a bronze medal in 56 kg at boxing event at recently held National Rural Sports Competition Group V at Indore, Madhya Pradesh.  The competition held from December 27 – 30 was organised by Mission Directorate – Rajiv Gandhi Khel Abhiyan, Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports, Government of India.
Taran Pradhan has thanked Pritam Shilal, his boxing coach for his triumph. He further thanked the state government for providing the platform and opportunity to showcase his skills.   Pradhan was among 10 boxers from Sikkim who was selected to represent the state after his successful stint at Rajiv Gandhi Khel Abhiyan selections held at different parts of Sikkim. Sikkim boxers went on to win three bronze medals in the competition. Other bronze medalists from Sikkim were Kalpana Subba from Mangshila and Mausam Rai from Namchi. There were six boys and four girls in the boxing events from Sikkim.
Pritam Shilal said, he is happy with the success of Taran Pradhan and is sure that his student will improve his medal tally in the coming tournaments. Shilal, boxing coach of Singtam Boxing Club in his early twenties had been two times bronze medalists at National Sub Junior Championship but his fatal knee ligament injury during India Camp in 2009 ended his promising career. Since then for the last two and half year, he had been training the young boys and girls into boxing.

When i started my blog on Sikkim way back in 2007, i had it clear on my mind that this blog shall help people look out for knowledge on Sikkim. I always wanted a knowledge house about Sikkim, its past, present and future. I do not know over the years how much did i succeed but my determination to let other understand my Sikkim is always giving me a push. with regards Shital Pradhan (himalayanreview@gmail.com)
