Mongolia’s boxing team won two gold, two silver and three bronze medals at the 22nd President’s Cup last week. The tournament, which attracted over 160 boxers from 19 countries, was held in Palembang in Indonesia from April 19 to 25.
The Mongolian team was coached by D.Batsuren and B.Enkhtaivan.
Boxers E.Tsendbaatar (men’s 56 kg) and B.Chinzorig (men’s 64 kg) won gold medals, and M.Nandintsetseg (women’s 51 kg) and D.Otgondalai (men’s 60 kg) took silver medals. G.Gan-Erdene (men’s 49 kg), O.Suvd-Erdene (women’s 60 kg), and B.Tuvshinbat (men’s 69 kg) seized bronze medals in their respective weight divisions.
The 22nd President Cup served as a training for the Mongolian team, especially for the coming Asian and World Championship tournaments, both of which are set to be held in tropical countries. The Asian Championship will be held in August in Bangkok Thailand.
The World Championship will take place in October in Doha, Qatar. This tournament will be the first Olympic qualification tournament for boxers around the world.
