They call her Magnificient Mary and MC Mary Kom lived up to that moniker with a brilliant performance as she led the Indian boxing squad to their best ever performance in the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast on Saturday. Just when people were asking whether the 35-year-old mother of three and former world champion, Asian champion, Asian Games gold medallist and Olympic bronze medallist still has the resolve and drive to win against competitors who are nearly a decade younger than her, Mary Kom proved that she still has the hunger and desire to not only compete but also win. The level of competition in the Commonwealth Games may not be the toughest and there were only eight comptetiors in the light flyweight (45-48kg) class, but Mary Kom still came up with a superb performance to bag the gold medal.
