Soumyajit Ghosh qualifies for London Olympics 2012 in Table Tennis(TT) from India but it was a real heartbreak for top paddler Achanta Sharath Kamal. Soumyajit Ghosh is second player to qualify for Olympics 2012 after Ankita Das who qualify for London 2012 Olympics yesterday. For both Ghosh and Ankita, the berths came via the continental quotas, after they topped from the South Asian region. Soumyajit Ghosh defeated Anthony Amal Raj 4-0 (12-10, 11-9, 11-6, 11-7) to clinch Olympics berth for India. 
Ghosh also gave full credit to the ITTF scholarship programme at the Peter Karlsson academy in Sweden and thanked the Table Tennis Federation of India (TTFI) for choosing him as a worthy player.  “My coaches in India as well as my training at the Karlsson Academy for six months has stood me in good stead and I must thank TTFI for selecting me for the scholarship,” added the BPCL player, who was part of India team’s bronze-winning member at the world junior championships in 2011. Incidentally, Ankita also became the youngest Indian girl to qualify for Olympics.
