India has had a tremendous day so far at the Commonwealth Games 2018. The Indian boxer Laishram Sarita Devi will try to keep it that way. The former national champion as well as the former world champion in the lightweight class, Sarita Devi takes on Kimberly Gittens of Barbados in the Women's 60kg Round of 16.

Sarita Devi will be seen in Blue and Kimberly will be seen in red. The 36-year-old boxer was born on 1 March 1982 in Mayang Imphal, Imphal West, Manipur. She has a very modest background and she used to help her parents in the fields and in collecting firewood. The raw work helped her build stamina needed to excel in boxing. Inspired by Muhammad Ali, Devi turned professional in boxing in 2000.

Her greatest achievement yet is winning the silver medal at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. She will vying for a place at the podium this time around as well.
