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 the world’s number one Busenaz 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.
