World Boxing Championships gold medalist Nikhat Zareen said meeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi was one of the best moments and she will treasure him for the rest of her life.
The two-time gold medalist Strandja Memorial added that she would like to continue winning medals at international level so she can meet PM Modi again and again.
The 26-year-old boxer from Telangana recently (May 20) clinched gold in the flyweight (52kg) category with an easy 5-0 victory over Thailand’s Jitpong Jutamas in Istanbul.
Nikhat, along with bronze medal-winning boxers Manisha Moun and Parveen Hooda, met PM Modi on June 1 after their outstanding performances at the World Boxing Championships.
It was a wonderful experience, I will always cherish this moment in my life. I was very nervous before the meeting with the PM sir, but the way he interacted, I never felt like I was meeting such a great leader. He continued the conversation as one speaks in family. He asked everything in detail, like how I prepare, which boxer from the country it was difficult to compete with. The whole conversation with him was good and memorable for all of us, Nikhat told IANS.
I also wanted to take a selfie with PM sir, and this opportunity arose after I won the gold medal at the World Championships. I would like to continue winning medals at the international level and I will meet him again and again, she said.
His way of speaking is very good and motivating for me. You can understand from the fact that I became flippant while speaking that I even said a Shayari to him. Have you ever heard of a player saying a Shayari to PM sir. We also gave him our boxing gloves as a sign of love and respect, the Nizamabad-born boxer said.
When asked how she sees PM Modis’ support for athletes, Nikhat replied: It’s not that Mr. Modi only meets winning players. We have all seen how he interacted with the Indian women’s hockey team after narrowly missing out on a medal at the Tokyo Olympics. He spoke to all the team members. I saw some players get emotional during the conversation and really liked how our PM motivated all the players. I don’t know if this happened before or not, but now we are all inspired to give our best, not to give up without a fight.

Nikhat Zareen joined Mary Kom (2002, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2010 and 2018), Sarita Devi (2006), Jenny RL (2006) and Lekha KC (2006) as the fifth Indian boxer to win a gold medal . at the Women’s World Championships. Manisha Moun and Parveen Hooda, both debutants, won bronze medals in the 57kg and 63kg weight classes respectively. Before Nikhat Zareen, Mary Kom was the last Indian boxer to win the championship in 2018.
Nikhat Zareen sealed the CWG spot with a dominating victory over Haryanas Minakshi with a 7-0 unanimous decision at the selection trials held in Delhi. She also hopes to maintain her good form at CWG 2022.
However, the 2019 Asian Championship bronze medalist said the ultimate goal is to medal at the Paris Olympics and for that, the CWG and the Asian Games are a ladder to achieve that.
My preparation is very good and I will do my best to win a medal in CWG as well, but my ultimate goal, like any athlete, is to win a medal in the Olympics. The Paris Games are not far away, Nikhat said.
Nikhat said that instead of strengthening one area, she was focusing on overall preparations.
I always save something surprising for the opposing boxers. These days, watching all the videos, everyone knows your strong and weak links. That’s why I focus on overall preparation. With the advent of technology, it has been advantageous that you know everything about the opposition, so in a way, it’s kind of a disadvantage too when everyone knows everything about you. In such a situation, you should always have something to surprise the opposition, she told IANS.
Adidas brand ambassador Nikhat thanked the company for their support when they needed it most.
The company supported me when I was nothing. I always feel obligated to their support and I hope that will continue in the future as well, she signed.
