Once a biopic is made, one would think it to be the celebratory end of a career. But not for the 34-year-old Mary Kom, who won India a gold medal at the Asian Boxing Championship that was being held at the Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam.

 

 

Though this is Kom’s fifth medal at the Asian boxing championship, it was her first gold in the 48 kg category. She faced Korea’s Kim Hyang Mi in the final bout and took her down 5-0. Quite out of the scene, this is her first gold since 2014 Asian Games. “I am really happy the way this Championship has panned out. I would like to dedicate this victory to all those who have supported me even though the world had written me off. I would like to thank my coaching staff who worked hard with me over the last few months,” Kom said after claiming the medal.
