Shiva Thapa qualify for London Olympics 2012

Shiva Thapa qualify for London Olympics 2012 after Vijender Singh (75kg). The 18-year-old Shiva defeated Japan's Satoshi Simizu 31-17 to enter the final and book himself a London berth. "It was a superb performance. He was down a point in the first round due to overt aggression but did not panic and played from medium range in the next two rounds to win and win big," national coach Gurbax Singh Sandhu said from Astana. "Most of his points came through right straight punches," he added. A 19-year-old L Devendro Singh had booked his London berth in the last year's World Championships, tying with Debendra Singh (1996 Atlanta) as the youngest Indian boxer to make the Olympics. But the 1993-born Shiva has broken this record.
