Jasmine had traveled to Gandhinagar, Gujarat to compete in the National Games on behalf of Haryana. It was here that the army’s officers finalized their enlistment. This event will be Jasmine’s last before joining the army’s team. When Jasmine’s uncle Sandeep Koch heard that his niece, a foreign exchange student named Jasmine Lamboria, had been offered a position in the army as a Havaldar.
he didn’t think twice about encouraging her to take it. After receiving her assignment letter, Jasmine became the first female boxer in the armed forces. Army tweets have also been disseminated with relevant info.
Special Recognition Made by Defeating the World Champion

Notable Accomplishments of Jasmine Lamboria
Jasmine Lamboria won a bronze medal in the 2021 Commonwealth Games, a silver medal at the 2021 Boxam International Boxing Tournament, and a bronze medal at the 2022 Asian Boxing Championship held in Dubai. My enlistment in the armed forces is something I am really pleased about.
Now is the time to break a sweat in the ring in preparation for the ASEAN and Olympic Games in 2023. In the military, one also learns discipline. After this competition, I’ll be the army’s official representative for the country. For me, being the first female boxer to enlist in the armed forces is a huge accomplishment.
