Taran secures boxing bronze at national rural sports meet

SINGTAM, 07 Jan: Taran Pradhan from Bardang near here won a bronze medal in boxing [56 kg weight category] at the National Rural Sports Competition Group V held in Indore, Madhya Pradesh from 27 to 30 December.
Taran has thanked Pritam Shilal, his boxing coach for his triumph. He further thanked the state government for providing him a platform and opportunity to showcase his skills. Taran was among the ten boxers from Sikkim selected to represent the State. Sikkim boxers went on to win three bronze medals in the competition. The 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 team from Sikkim.
Coach Pritam Shilal said he was happy with Taran’s success and expressed confidence that his student will improve his medal ranking in the coming tournaments. Mr. Shilal coaches at the Singtam Boxing Club and is a two-time bronze medalist at the National Sub Junior Championship. A debilitating knee ligament injury at India Camp in 2009 ended his promising career. Since then, he has devoted himself to coaching and has been training young boys and girls in boxing.
