From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mangte Chungneijang Merykom also known as Mary Kom is a female Indian boxer from Manipur, India. Mary Kom, a mother of two, came back from a two-year sabbatical to clinch her fourth successive World Amateur boxing gold in 2008, a feat that prompted the AIBA to describe her as 'Magnificent Mary'[1]. She was earlier an athlete and later switched to Boxing after the success of fellow Manipur boxer Dingko Singh.[2][3]
