Commonwealth Games success a boost before Asian Games: Mary Kom

At the closing ceremony, Mary Kom led the Indian contingent which had over the past two weeks won 66 medals - for third best showing at a Commonwealth Games. It was the ideal tonic the boxer needed to do the one thing she hasn't done yet - win a medal at the Commonwealth Games. Who are these people to stop me? "I will continue to play as long as I want", she said.

She recently made India proud by winning a gold medal in Boxing Light Flyweight (48kg) category at the Commonwealth Games as she defeated Kristina O'Hara of Northern Ireland in the final bout, winning via unanimous decision.

Losing to Smith in what was only her third fight as a senior boxer led O'Hara a period of introspection and rebuilding, but these Commonwealth Games have seen the 22-year-old announce her arrival on the global stage in emphatic fashion.

Mary Kom struck her at will, her right hooks being especially telling. This did not go down too well with Mary, she still managed to sportingly give a hilarious reply to him and handled the question really well.

WWE Reveals What The Winner Of The Greatest Royal Rumble Will Receive
The Middle Eastern event revolves around one very big match for the evening: a 50-man Royal Rumble match. After the first night of the Superstar Shakeup , Jinder Mahal moves to RAW after losing his U.S.

It is Kom's first Commonwealth medal of any colour and burnishes a trophy cabinet that already includes an Olympic bronze from London 2012 and five amateur world championship titles. By the second round, Mary Kom seemed to be thoroughly enjoying herself in the ring against her timid rival. However, this did not stop Mary from coming back to the sport.

After her triumph in the Gold Coast Games, Kom dedicated her medal to her children and thanked her coaches and support staff for believing in her.

"If I am still super-fit in another year I will try", she added of another tilt at a maiden Olympic gold. Today was just a wee bit of a slower pace for me so it was out of my comfort zone, but I thought I had done enough to win. Mary Kom is truly an inspiration and teaches us to never let the child die in us and always give your 100 percent.
