TOKYO, Oct 31: Shiva Thapa (63kg) and Pooja Rani (75kg) clinched gold medals, while Ashish (69kg) settled for a silver, ending India�s brilliant campaign at the Olympic Test Event for Boxing here on Thursday.

Four-time Asian medallist Thapa outpunched Kazakhstan�s national champion and Asian bronze-winner Sanatali Toltayev 5-0 to claim the top honours. Thapa is also the reigning national champion and a former bronze-medallist at the world championships.

Former Asian Games bronze-medallist Rani edged past Australia�s Caitlin Parker to ensure that the Indian women�s contingent also had a gold in its kitty. Rani had claimed a silver medal at the Asian Championships earlier this year.

Ashish (69kg), however, lost to Japan�s Sewon Okazawa to sign off with a silver medal. Earlier, former junior world champion Nikhat Zareen (51kg), Simranjeet Kaur (60kg) along with Asian silver-medallist Sumit Sangwan (91kg) and Vahlimpuia (75kg), in the men�s draw, lost their respective semifinals. � PTI
