The Haryana girl Jasmine, scouted during an open challenge before participating at the national camp last year, showed her skillset blanking silver medallist from recently-concluded Strandja Memorial Tournament Medina.
However, Lovlina Borogohain (69kg), who also played first tournament after a year, and Manisha Moun (57kg) could not progress into the last-four stage. While Lovlina lost 5-0 to Russia’s Saadat Dalgatova, Manisha Moun also suffered 5-0 defeat against Italy’s Irma Testa.
A 14-member Indian contingent (eight men and six women), including nine Olympic qualified and other top boxers, is taking part at the 35th edition of the tournament.
