Olympic Final Day 2 round-Up: Double Delight For Shiming And Cammerelle

Local hero Zou Shiming and Italian super heavyweight Roberto Cammerelle both added an Olympic title to the World Championship medal they won in Chicago last year as the finals for the 54kg, 60kg, 69kg, 81kg and +91kg divisions were completed with the final tally of 11 gold medals being spread across nine different countries.

Light Flyweight Zou Shiming, gave the home crowd the gold medal they were hoping for with the easiest of victories in the 48kg final, rarely being tested by Serdamba Purevdorj, who had to retire early in the second round citing a shoulder injury.

The second bout of the day saw AIBA World Championships silver medallist Badar-Uugan Enkhbat from Mongolia pull off a sensational 16:5 victory over Cuban Leon Alarcon Yankiel at Bantamweight 54kg.
Russia doubled its gold medal count when Alexey Tishchenko became only the fourth boxer to win gold in two weight divisions. After winning the 57kg title in Athens, Tishchenko beat Daouda Sow from France in a very tight 60kg final, 11:9.

The 69kg final saw Cuban Carlos Banteaux Suarez lose 18:9 to Bakhyt Sarsekbayev fron Kazakhstan before China won its second gold when Xiaoping Zhang out-pointed Irishman Kenny Egan 11:7 in the 81kg final.

The final bout of the day saw current world champion Roberto Cammarelle from Italy add an Olympic gold after knocking down and stopping China’s Zhang Zhilei in the fourth session.

The Val Barker Trophy deservedly went to Vasyl Lomachenko Ukraine, the 57kg Featherweight gold medallist.
