Happy that I can participate in Olympics atleast, want to thank those who supported me throughout: S

Imphal, Dec 17 (ANI): Boxer Sarita Devi on Wednesday thanked the Sports Minister, Boxing India, SAI, Sachin Tendulkar and the entire nation for supporting her. Even as the International Boxing Federation AIBA has imposed one year ban on Sarita as she refused to accept her bronze medal in the Asian Games which took place in Incheon this year, the boxer expressed happiness that she would get a chance to participate in the Olympics. Sarita will be eligible to return to action by November 2015, in time for the women's Olympic qualifiers for the Rio Games in 2016. The world boxing body also handed down two-year bans, ending Oct 1, 2016 to the 29-year-old boxer's husband Thoiba Singh Dec 17, 2014
