Mary had a little loss; brings home bronze




She was unable to participate in the Beijing Olympics 2008 because the officials took her as ‘not good enough’. Her talent was unrecognized and her hard work seemed to be lost in her practice ring. But after a wait of four years and more practice, she will come back to the same country with a medal around her neck.

Mary Kom had a little loss; brings home bronze

Mary Kom has become a star boxer and an inspiration to so many women in India. The 29 year old was hoping to seize a gold but was left heartbroken as Britain’s Nicola Adams went ahead of her on the match played on Wednesday. She nevertheless is proud, along with the home country, that she will come back with a bronze. The 29 year old is a five time world champion and she showed off just how good she is with her fights during the course of her stay in London.  A mother of twins, all the little ones knew was that they will be getting skateboards once she returns home.

Her opponent grabbed a comfortable win with a 11-6 score. Adams has won two silvers in the world championships and knew she had to be better than the usual to be able to defeat the champion and that is exactly what she did. Her attack and tactics were all supremely polished and she demonstrated fine practice as she took over the Indian. That, however, does not mean that Mary Kom had any less in her. She was well worthy of a gold.

The home crowd obviously cheered on Adams in full dynamism including the Britain PM David Cameron but the Indian support was no less. Mary Kom was cheered on by her fans and got plenty of needed support throughout the match. She said that her opponent was powerful though her own tactics were better at the game.

Boxing’s popularity has suddenly increased in India with such worthy contenders displaying their magnificent talent.

Hopes are tied on L Devendro Singh in hopes for a silver or gold. Until now India has gotten three bronze and one silver at the games and is looking at Devendro to make the tally higher. As compared to the last Olympics, this certainly is better, though still under-accomplished.
