AIR PIC
In Boxing, India's tally of assured medals at the Asian Youth Championships swelled to 12 after four more boxers from the country advanced to the semifinals in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia yesterday.

In 91 kilogram category, Satender Singh defeated Korean Haneul Jung to make the last-four in the men's draw. Joining him was Selay Soy (49kg), who put it past Taiwan's Tzu-Chen.

In the women's draw, Poonam (54kg) and Arundhati Choudhary (69kg) made the medal rounds. While Poonam out-punched Philippines' Caranagan Kaye, Arundhati defeated Taiwan's Pin-Ju Chen.

However, it was curtains for the other Indians in the fray in today's quarterfinal bouts.

In the men's competition, Akshay Kumar (64kg) lost to Darkhan Duiisebay of Kazakhstan. Also bowing out were Vijaydeep (69kg) and Lakshya Chahar (81kg).  Vijaydeep lost in a split verdict to Rustambek Uulu Nuradin of Kyrgyzstan. Chahar was also beaten in a split decision by Uzbekistan's Shokhjakhon Abdullev.

Among the women, Rajni (48kg) lost to Japan's Sinchara Hikaru in a split decision.
