P Narjit Singh did India proud by winning the 54 kg category gold medal in boxing on the penultimate day of competitions at the fourth Military World Games in Hyderabad on Saturday.

While the men's volleyball team defeated Qatar in straight sets to claim the bronze medal at the same event.

Narjit defeated Marcel Schneider of Germany 12-8 to claim the lone boxing gold, while Hari Krishan Belwal, Satya Raju, D Bhagyarajan and Mohinder Thapa all won bronze medals after having lost their respective semi-final bouts on Friday.

The men spikers smashed their way to the men's volleyball bronze medal with an identical 25-21, 25-21, 25-21 straight sets win over Qatar.

China clinched the gold defeating South Korea 26-24, 25-21, 25-20 in the final super league game. The Koreans, having defeated both India and Qatar, had to settle for the silver medal.
