Wasn’t Easy To Choose Boxing Being A Girl: Mary Kom Ahead Of Tokyo

Six-time world champion MC Mary Kom is chasing the elusive gold medal missing from her trophy shelf. She is eagerly waiting for the much-awaited 2020 Tokyo Olympics which are scheduled to be held in July-August 2020. Kom (51kg) qualified for the Games and has recently expressed how important self-determination is for her to go ahead in the league. This will be Mary Kom’s second Olympic appearance. She booked her Olympic berth by making it to the semifinals of the Asia/Oceania Qualifiers. She ended her campaign with a bronze at the qualifiers.

“This (qualification) was a long time coming. I have worked a lot for this. I feel I have earned this. It wasn’t easy to choose boxing being a girl. The other (hurdle) was continuing boxing after marriage. It was difficult to make a comeback after child birth,” she said in a video shared by Olympic Channel.
