India’s best medal bet Marykom reaches London Olympics Quarters

August 5, 2012

MC Marykom, London Olympics

One of the biggest hope for an Indian Olympic Gold Medal, MC Marykom, also known as Magnificent Mary started off her first bout in the right manner defeating her Polish Opponent, Karolina Michalczuk , where the score read 19-14 . Out of the four rounds during the bout, it was the third round which made most of the difference, where Marykom scored 7 points compared to the Michalczuk’s 3 points.

She has thus progressed into the quarter finals of the competition, where the competition is expected to be top notch with other boxers also eager for a medal in the competition. But, Marykom would still be one of the favourites for the gold medal. Experts also claim her to be the favourite.

The match was not as easy as many expected it to be, as the Polish girl also unleashed some punches to catch the Indian on the back foot. But, it was Marykom’s experience and her technique which proved to be clinical during the match. During the latter stages of the match, she looked a bit tired, but the mother of two gave her best to turn out triumphant. A similar and consistent performance will surely help her in bringing home an Olympic Gold medal. The first hurdle has been cleared. She needs to remain undefeated if she is to win the elusive Gold medal.
