MC Mary Kom, the diminutive Indian woman boxer who carried into the Olympic semi-finals the weight of an entire nation's expectations, will bring home a bronze medal. She lost a closely fought bout against World Number 2 Nicola Adams.
Olympic bronze medallist Mary Kom tells NDTV that she has fought with a free mind in the London Olympics and that she will try and come back harder in the next Olympics, hinting perhaps then that she is ready to box for many more years to come.
From a humble background to becoming a bronze medallist at the Olympics, Mary Kom has come a long way. NDTV's Monideepa Banerjie takes an insight into what went into the making of a champion like her. Her father Tonpu, sister Anne and coach Ibomcha talk about Mary in detail. A mother of twins, she also runs an academy now, her own little way of giving back to the society.
