SPORT-MARY 2 LAST

first_img“This team has a lot of experience. Were much better “This team has a lot of experience. Were much better prepared now. Were doing the same, its tough no doubt. But were doing our best to better my performance. My husband (K Onler Kom) is giving me full support without whom its difficult,” Mary Kom said. The flyweight boxer said shes training with taller men in higher weight categories to prepare in a better way. “Ive experience, its all about training with different partners. Im training with the boys who are heavier and taller than me. Im preparing at a higher level so that I can handle things easily in an actual competition,” she said. The celebrated Manipuri, however, refused to predict on whether she would make the Olympic cut in the upcoming qualifiers. “Boxing is so unpredictable. Personally I dont believe in saying I will win or not. Yes Im confident but not over confident. For example, it might become easy or difficult for me in the end. “Everyone is doing their best and trying to do better. You will just see in the ring. You will have to wait for the final bout then you would know what Im doing or not doing. You should never take any opponent easily,” she said. Mary Kom, who had announced that Rio Olympics would be her last, said she might think reconsider depending on how things pan out. “Rio should be my last but I will see after the Olympics. I will concentrate on coaching at the Academy. Were only waiting for the inauguration. I will take a break for one or two years. I may reconsider if 2020 will have more categories. You never know,” she signed off. PTI TAP PM PMadvertisementlast_img read more
