Five times world champion in boxing- Mangte Chungneijang Mary Kom - yet most of us know not much about her. Blame it on our 'cricket-crazy' selves or government or partiality by media, unless someone wins an Olympic medal, we are least bothered about other sports personalities of our country! Nevertheless, nothing can act as a deterrent in the way of ‘Magnificent MC Mary Kom’- the queen of rings-who created history by entering the semi-finals of women boxing at London Olympics 2012. Though she lost the semi-finals today, but does the color of the Olympic medal matter? (She lost to Britain's Nicola Adams - 6-11. Breakup: 1-3, 1-2, 2-3, 2-3)

Saina Nehwal finally did it! Finally she got her due! Finally, she showed to the world that India cannot be under-estimated in the Badminton sport! The Bronze medal that she won at the London Olympics today, isn't just a medal but a reflection of the huge efforts that she put into to bring her talent on the world-stage and do India proud at the global level. Although the medal came in quite an unusual fashion, with the Chinese opponent Wang walking away from the match due to an injury, yet the fact remains, Saina DESERVED an Olympic medal!Add a comment
Though I somehow missed 'the round of 32 of 81 Kg category' boxing match last night at the London Olympics, however it was extremely sad to hear in the morning that India's valiant boxer- Sumit Sangwan had to lose to his Brazilian opponent- Yamaguchi Falacao, under 'controversial' circumstances despite fighting so bravely.Add a comment
