Lovlina has become the first woman athlete from Assam to qualify for the Olympics. 23-year-old Lovlina has had to go through a lot of struggle between the journey to the semi-finals of the Olympics. Initially, Lovlina tried her hand at kickboxing but then made full boxing as her career.
Born on 2 October 1997 in Golaghat, Assam, Lovlina started playing kick boxing after watching her elder twin sisters Licha and Lima. After this, the famous coach of the state of boxing, Padam Boro, recognizing Lovlina’s talent and started training her.

At the same time, the Olympic Games were to be held only after six-7 months. In such a situation, he was isolated and people were afraid that something might happen to him. However, after defeating Corona, Lovlina started training after a few days. At the same time, in the Tokyo Olympics, India is ready to write a new history in boxing.
