Lovlina’s medal will be India’s first medal in boxing in the last nine years but she will now aim to reach the final where no Indian has reached so far.
Sports academy proposed in the name of Lovlina
A Bharatiya Janata Party MLA on Sunday proposed to set up a sports academy in the state’s Golaghat district in the name of Olympian Lovlina Borgohain. Sarupathar MLA of the state Vishwajit Phukan had said that he has sent a proposal to this effect to the state administration. The BJP leader had said that we have identified 40 bighas of government land in Naharbari village, which is only two kilometers away from the birthplace of Borgohain. The boxer’s father and businessman Teikon Borgohain thanked the MLA after getting information about this proposal.
