Shiva Thapa won Bronze medal at the 2015 World Championships and thus he became only the third Indian male boxer to achieve this feat. Shiva Thapa had earlier created history when he became the youngest Indian boxer ever to qualify for the Olympics (London 2012) at the age of just 18. Shiva did it in style by winning the London Olympics Continental Qualifying (Asia) event in Kazakhstan in 2012. Though he lost in the first round, this experience gave him a lot of confidence. He qualified for his second Olympics in style by winning Gold medal at the Asian Olympic Qualifiers in China in 2016.
Shiva, who won a silver medal at the Youth Olympic Games at Singapore and also at the World Youth Boxing Championship, took up the sport of Boxing at the tender age of 7 and was initially coached by his father, Mr. Padam Thapa. His splendid boxing skills have fetched him ten gold, one silver and three bronze medals from 16 national and International tournaments that he has participated in, an outstanding record indeed. He beat World No.2 and World Boxing champion Delakliev Detelin of Bulgaria to win Gold at the Belgrade Winner Tournament in 2011. With this win Shiva became India’s top pugilist in the 56 kg category.
Shiva won a gold medal in the 50 kg category representing India at Hyder Aliyev International Boxing Championship held in Azerbaijan, Baku (May 2008). He also won two bronze medals at The IV International Sports Games “Children of Asia” held in Yakutia in 50 kg category (July 2008) and AIBA World Junior Boxing Championship held in Yerevan, Armenia in 52 kg category (May 2009). But, his biggest win came when he won the silver at the World Youth Boxing Championship at Baku and in the process qualified for the inaugural Youth Olympic Games in Singapore where he went on to win a Silver medal for India.
