When Mary Kom arrived there for the recently concluded 13th Silesian boxing tournament in Galway, Poland, in this tournament she reduced two kilos and in just four hours.
Reducing the weight of two kg in four hours would be a little strange to hear, but the Indian boxer MC Mary Kom, who reached Poland after a long trip, had to meet this challenge despite fatigue. When Mary Kom arrived there for the recently concluded 13th Silesian boxing tournament in Galway, Poland, she weighed two kilos and she had four hours to weight the tournaments. He not only completed this challenge, but also won the gold medal in the tournament, which is his third yellow tactic this year.
Five times World Champion Mary Kom said after returning home, “We arrived in Poland at around three o’clock in the morning and the weight program for the tournament was to be held at 7:30 a.m.. I had to take part in the weight of 48 kilograms and my weight was two kilos more than that. “
The 35-year-old boxer, Olympic bronze medalist, said, “I had about four hours to lose weight, but if I did not do it, I would disqualify. I had to skip for one hour continuously and then I was ready for weight. “
She said, “The good thing for us was that the plane we were traveling was almost empty, so I could spread the legs and sleep well so that there was not much exhaustion when we arrived. Otherwise I do not know if I could participate in the tournament. “
This Manipur player is the only Indian player to win gold in the senior category of the tournament. Mari Kom will turn 36 in two months, but the boxer made it clear that he would continue his game until the 2020 Olympics.
She said, “The World Championship to be held in November will not be my last tournament. I’m not going anywhere in the 2020 Olympics“.
