As the first month of 2024 wraps up, India can look back at a strong start. Now, it’s all about keeping that energy going as we dive into the second month. This week, Indian athletes will be busy as boxing, weightlifting, and swimming all kick off their seasons. Although there won’t be any chance for Olympic spots in the first week of February, there’s still plenty to get excited about.

Keep an eye on the Women’s FIH Pro League, where India’s women’s hockey team is competing for the top spot. Also, watch out for more action in the FIH Pro League with the Indian hockey teams. Stay tuned for these big highlights in the early days of February on India’s sports scene!


Indian boxers are gearing up for a strong showing at this year’s inaugural event kicking off on February 2nd. Europe’s longest-standing boxing competition, the Strandja Cup, takes place between February 2-11 at Sofia Sports Hall. Running since 1950, when it first took place at Sofia’s Yunak stadium, this prestigious tournament rewards the top boxer with a trophy. Hristo Popov, born in 1931, was the first to receive this honor.
