Bhubaneswar– Noted sand artist Sudarsan Pattnaik has created a 10 feet long sand glove to congratulate boxer Lovlina Borgohain for winning the bronze medal at Tokyo Olympics, on the Puri beach in Odisha.
India’s Lovlina Borgohain settled for a hard-fought bronze after losing the women’s welterweight semifinal (69kg) against world’s number one Business Surmeneli in Tokyo, thus becoming the third athlete after Mirabai Chau and PV Sindhu to bag a medal for India at the ongoing Games.
Sudarsan created the 10 feet boxing gloves for Lovlina with the message, “Pride of India”. He took four and used about 8 tonnes of sand to create this sculpture. “We congratulate Lovlina for winning the bronze medal in the Olympics,” he said. (IANS)
