Mary Kom Wins Championships gold in Vietnam

Ho Chi Minh City, 08 November, (

Mary Kom defeated Korea's Kim Hyang Mi in the final clash at Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. She returned to her favorite 48-kg category and emerged victorious after five years.

Further, this was Mary Kom's first medal in more than a year and first international gold medal since the 2014 Asian Games.

Despite not qualifying for the 2016 Rio Olympics, this tournament proves there is still plenty left in the tank of ‘Magnificent Mary’ as she added yet another feather in her already illustrious cap.

Many thought the celebrated Indian boxer was done with the ring after failing to make it to the 2016 Rio Olympics.

However, her run to the final of the Asian Women’s Boxing Championships has shown that she is still the gold standard of women’s boxing in India.
