Boxer Uprising: China sweeps gold for women’s boxing at 2010 Asian Games


Boxer Uprising: China sweeps gold for women’s boxing at 2010 Asian Games


Chinese boxer Ren Cancan gained one for the history books when she captured Gold for China at the Asian Games — a fabulous first as Women’s boxing begins its rounds in the run-up to the 2012 Olympics.

Winning in the 52 kilogram (lightweight) division, Ren easily handled Annie Albania of the Philippines.  As quoted in the Taiwan News, Ren said, “Female boxing wasn’t in the Asian Games or the Olympics before, so it wasn’t so popular. Now people will pay more attention.”

Annie Albania received the silver while India’s storied Mary Kom and Japan’s Aya Shinmoto shared the Bronze.

The games will continue today with the final bouts to determine the bronze, silver and gold for the Flyweight and Middleweight divisions.

UPDATE:  Other medalists:

Li Jinzi, China, Women’s Middleweight, Gold Medal

Dong Cheng, China, Women’s Flyweight, Gold Medal

Undram Erdenesoyol, Mongolia, Middleweight, Silver Medal

Tassamalee Thongjan, Thailand, Flyweight, Silver Medal

Saida Khassenova, Kazakhstan, Middleweight, Bronze Medal

Suyeon Seong, Korea, Middleweight, Bronze Medal

Kum Ju Yun, DPR Korea, Lightweight, Bronze Medal

Chungneija, Hmangte, Flyweight, Bronze Medal
