Rounding off a reasonably successful campaign for India, Shamjetsabam Sarjubala (48kg) and Pinki Jangra (51kg) clinched god medals at the 22nd President's Cup Open International Boxing Tournament at Palembang, South Sumatra, Indonesia.

Pinki, a Commonwealth Games bronze-medallist, defeated Mongolia's Nandintsetseg 2-1 to notch up the yellow metal.

World Championships silver-medallist Sarjubala, on the other hand, got the better of Russian pugilist Iseva Joya in the final as India ended with two gold medals at the event.

The other Indians who participated in the tournament were Priya Dayal (54 kg), Bilao Basumatary(57 kg) and Preeti Beniwal (60 kg) but none of them could make the medal rounds.

More than 130 boxers from 30 countries participated in the tournament.
