CWG 2022: The unique story of Neetu becoming a gold medalist, father made daughter a champion boxer without salary
- Neetu won gold medal in Commonwealth Games in boxing
- Neetu dedicates her gold medal to father
- Father’s sacrifice made Neetu a champion boxer
CWG 2022: Indian female boxer Neetu Ghansana won the gold medal while debuting in the Commonwealth Games. This medal is very important emotionally for the country as well as for them. He probably would not have had this medal if his father had not stood by him like a strong pillar. This is the reason why Neetu dedicated her first gold medal to father Jai Bhagwan, who left no stone unturned to fulfill his daughter’s dream. Haryana Secretariat employee Jai Bhagwan is on unpaid leave for the last three years to train two-time World Youth Champion Neetu.
Father’s sacrifice made Neetu a gold medalist
Surely Neetu’s father made great sacrifices to make his daughter a champion boxer. Father’s sacrifice and campaign paid off in Birmingham on Sunday when Neetu continued to dominate the women’s 45-48kg minimum weight category by defeating Dame-Jade Reston of England in the final. The Indian boxer from Bhiwani registered a historic victory by defeating 2019 World Championship bronze medalist boxer Reston 5-0 in a unanimous decision of five judges.

After winning the gold medal, Neetu expressed special gratitude to her father and said, “My father left no stone unturned for me. He went through many difficult situations but always made sure that I got the best. I wouldn’t have been here without their support.
,is very shy ,gabbar lioness, Neetu,
This 21-year-old boxer from Haryana is no less than anyone inside the ring but when she comes out of the ring, she is very shy. Shyness so much that it takes attention to listen to their words. Indian team coach Bhaskar Chandra Bhatt calls Neetu as ‘Gabbar lioness’.
“She has always been like this (shy nature). You can hardly hear his voice in and outside the camp. She is like ‘Gabbar lioness’ inside the ring.”
Neetu, selected for the Commonwealth Games in place of her ‘ideal’ and six-time world champion Mary Kom, remained unbeaten here. Neetu said, “Mary Kom is a different place of ma’am. He has given an identity to Indian boxing at the world level. I am nowhere in front of them.
