In two weeks time, Mary Kom will be competing in her seventh World Boxing Championships. She started her international success by bagging a silver medal in Pennsylvania, US in 2001, when the women’s world championships were organized for the first time.
Then, Mary was just 18, a fearless. Is now an Olympic medallist, a parliamentarian, mother of twins and an icon at 35.
Presently in order to compete well, she is thinking ahead and wants to create new memories. She said, “Maybe, I will have a new memory to share after this. I love all my medals and I will try to get a 6th World Championships gold here.”
“I am competing in world championships in my category (48kg) after a long time. That is an advantage. I won gold in 2006 here in front of home crowd and this time too I want to gift gold to my country. I will try my best.”
Italian coach Raffaele Bergamasco was monitoring Mary and he wanted more intensity, a different set of combination.
