A step away from Nishant Dev for the Paris Olympics quota

Nishant Dev

In the world of sports, every victory counts, but some wins carry a weight beyond the immediate triumph. For Indian Boxer Nishant Dev, his next win holds the promise of an Olympic quota, a coveted position that could pave his way to the 2024 Paris Olympics.

Nishant Dev is indeed one step away from securing a quota for the Paris 2024 Olympics in the men’s 71kg weight category. He has been performing exceptionally well at the World Olympic Boxing Qualification Tournament in Busto Arsizio, Italy.

Nishant Dev, a rising star in the Indian sports fraternity, has been making waves with his exceptional performances. His journey, marked by determination and hard work, has brought him to the brink of securing an Olympic quota.

In the pre-quarterfinals, Nishant Dev secured a unanimous 5:0 decision victory against Christos Karaitis of Greece. His next challenge is the quarter-finals where he will face Omari Jones of the USA, a world championships silver medallist. A win in this match will secure an Olympic boxing quota for India in the men’s 71kg event.

Nishant Dev’s potential victory would mark the first men’s boxing quota secured by India for the 2024 Olympics. His success stands in stark contrast to the performance of his fellow Indian boxers. He is the sole remaining competitor out of the initial nine who participated in the tournament.

Securing an Olympic quota is no small feat. It requires athletes to consistently perform at their peak in international competitions, proving their mettle against some of the best talents worldwide. For Nishant, the journey has been challenging, filled with intense training sessions, gruelling competitions, and constant pressure to outperform.

However, Nishant’s unwavering focus and commitment have seen him overcome these hurdles. His performances have shown a steady improvement, reflecting his growing mastery of the sport.
