Afghanistan and Hong Kong secured gold medals at the Olympic Dreamer Tournament

The Olympic Dreamer Tournament was one of the highlights in the recent days in Sarajevo, Bosnia & Herzegovina where the Asian boxers claimed two gold medals.

Sarajevo celebrated the 40th anniversary of their Winter Olympic Games and the local boxing organizers decided to host an international competition and training camp in the capital of Bosnia & Herzegovina to remember the multisport event.

Mr. Adnan Pasic, the Tournament Director of the Olympic Dreamer Tournament, welcomed teams from all over the world and three Confederations sent their boxers to the elite competition to Sarajevo.

The competition was held in a picturesque environment at the Hotel Hills Sarajevo Congress and Thermal Spa Resort and the participating teams received all of the supports from the local organizers.

Slovakia’s Miroslava Jedinakova and Serbia’s ex-Russian Sadam Magomedov were named as best boxers of the Olympic Dreamer Tournament but Afghanistan and Hong Kong also achieved titles in this elite competition.

Hong Kong’s professional World Champion Tso Sing Yu returned to the national team in 2019 and the veteran boxer earned a gold medal at the men’s featherweight (57kg) in Sarajevo which is a great achievement before the 1st World Olympic Boxing Qualifying Event.

Afghanistan’s new face in the national team, Zalgai Laghmani was unstoppable at the men’s light welterweight (63.5kg), he defeated more experienced boxers in the Olympic Dreamer Tournament. The young Afghan had still the power to beat Bosnia & Herzegovina’s national team member, Wail Meiri in the final of the competition.

Afghanistan’s Sadia Bromand, their best female boxer, advanced to the finals of the women’s light flyweight (50kg) following her impressive semi-final triumph. The Afghan talent, who lives and trains in Berlin, was not enough experienced yet to beat Serbia’s Kristina Nadj-Varga in the final.

Hong Kong’s Winnie Au Ying Ying claimed a silver medal at the women’s bantamweight (54kg), Slovakia’s Bibiana Lovasova stopped her. Hong Kong’s experienced men’s flyweight (51kg) boxer Kenneth Tam Chun Hin bagged silver medal as well following her tight loss to Slovakia’s Erik Katona.
