India’s Jitender Kumar lost to Russia’s Georgy Balakshin in the flyweight (51 kgs) boxing event at the Beijing Olympics. It was a well-fought contest but the Russian definitely had an upperhand and trounced Jitender 15-11.
With this defeat, India’s hope of getting another medal at the Olympics were dashed. However, saluting the effort of Jitender Kumar, we hope to see best of him in the near future.
All eyes on Vijender Kumar now!
