UK's Amir Khan boxes on; China Claims 2 Historic Golds

Britain's Amir Khan could become the youngest Olympic boxing champion in 52 years after assuring himself of at least a lightweight silver medal.

The 17-year-old continued his startling progress in Athens by beating Serik Yeleuov of Kazakhstan 40-26 on points in a stunning semi-final victory.

Wow - this is just amazing. I heard about an "Indian boxer" but didn't realize that it was a South Asian briton, or that he was moving this far into the competition - I think that he's guaranteed at least a Silver now, and if he goes gold... what a cool story!
