Boxer Sarita Devi confident of winning gold in 2016 Olympics

Guwahati, Jan 04 (ANI): Boxer Sarita Devi, who has been banned for one year by the world governing body AIBA for her petulant behaviour at the Asian Games, exuded confidence and said she would win gold medal in 2016 Rio Olympics. While addressing a news conference in Assam, Devi said she would make her country proud in 2016 Olympics to be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She added the controversy made her mentally strong. Furious after losing her semi-final to local favourite Park Ji-na in the women's lightweight division in Incheon in October last year, Sarita refused to accept her bronze medal, prompting AIBA to suspend her indefinitely.
