Shiva Thapa: Profile 2012 London OlympicsFull Name: Shiva Thapa

Born: 8 December, 1993 (age 18)

Sports: Boxing

Weight: 56kg (Bantamweight)

Shiva Thapa: Even before the London Games, the 18-year-old has made news by becoming the youngest ever Indian boxer to qualify for the London Olympics.

Just as a 15-year-old, Thapa won his first major international award at a junior competition in Azerbaijan. A year later, he bagged bronze at the 2009 Junior World Boxing Championship and at 17 he won a silver medal at the 2010 Summer Youth Olympics.

Shiva’s father Padam Thapa, a karate instructor in Guwahati and his elder brother Gobind Thapa, an Assam state-level medal winning boxer are the sources of inspiration which made him take boxing as a profession. While his peers will have to meet up the high expectations of their fans, the little dynamite might just create another history at 2012 London Olympics.
