Nearly each medal that’s there to be taken is in her kitty, however Indian boxer MC Mary Kom says she nonetheless trains like a maniac, the newest results of the routine being a gold on debut on the Commonwealth Video games in Gold Coast. The 35-year-old mother-of-three, who has 5 world titles and an Olympic bronze medal, is seen as a sporting icon not simply in India but in addition in different nations. Topped Asian champion simply months in the past, Mary Kom added the sunshine flyweight (48kg) Commonwealth crown to her tally on Saturday. “The secret to my success is my fitness and I am very quick. I plan well before bouts. I am lucky that I can catch my opponents within seconds. I am able to read them very quickly,” a guffawing Mary Kom stated on the finish of her CWG marketing campaign. “I don’t have injuries, all I have is minor issues like cramps sometimes,” she added.
And the key to her health ranges and to an extent her calm manner within the ring is a coaching routine that she refuses to let go even someday.
“When I decide something with my head and heart than even my husband cannot stop me. He sometimes tells me to take it easy after competition but I can’t help it,” she stated.
“I have to train to keep myself calm. It’s a a strong urge, it’s a habit and training makes me happy. When I don’t train I feel sick sometimes,” she added.
However regardless of the excessive health ranges, she would not commit on whether or not the outlandish risk of a 2020 Olympic look is on her thoughts.
“2020 is difficult to say, but I will try my best. 48kg is not there and I will have to put on weight to be in 51kg which is never easy. If I am super fit till 2020, I will compete but if I am not fit I will not,” stated the achieved boxer.
Talking of her 22-year-old opponent Kristina O’Hara, who works as a carer in a nursing house, Mary Kom stated she has sparred along with her previously.
“I had a friendly match with her. I have sparred with her so I knew her gameplan well. I told myself that it is easy but I had to be prepared for everything,” she stated.
Elated at being India’s first lady boxer to say a CWG gold, Mary Kom stated scripting historical past makes her completely happy.
“I have won everything and all of my medals are very important. Do I need to say more? Which other boxers can claim that now I would not be scared of anyone? I am very happy that I created history. I have got everything,” she said.
“I still think about Olympics gold but other than that I have got everything. Even in Olympics, I do have a medal. I haven’t left out anything,” she signed off.
