Indian boxers Shiva Thapa (54kg) and J Bhaskar (51kg) notched up contrasting wins to advance to the pre-quarterfinals of the World Youth Championships in Baku, Azerbaijan today.
Shiva defeated England’s Qais Dad Ashfaq 4-1, while Bhaskar out-slugged Iran’s Armin Amjadian 12-4 to enter the last-16 stage. Both of them are just two wins away from not only securing a medal but also booking a berth in the August-September Youth Olympic Games in Singapore.
Tiger takes his game to a public event
Charlotte, North Carolina: Tiger Woods is back on the golf course, this time playing before the general public at Quail Hollow in his first regular U.S. PGA Tour event.
Woods was sporting a goatee on Wednesday. And similar to Augusta National, the gallery offered a warm applause as he made his way around the course during a pro-am.
Woods stopped and posed for a picture with a young boy as he walked to the second tee.
He planned to speak later in the day, right after Masters champion Phil Mickelson, who is making his first start since winning his third green jacket.
