Chungneijang Mary Kom Hmangte’s story is one of struggle, grit and determination. Mary Kom (as she is called), is a five-time World Amateur Boxing champion and an Olympic bronze medalist.   

Nevertheless, she acknowledges the hardships that she has been through. According to her, the framed photographs from her boxing career in her living room are a reminder of the fact that her stardom is not a dream.

Her journey began with her victory in the 1st Women National Boxing Championship in 2001 and she hasn’t looked back ever since. But even after achieving so much, she still thinks she has more to offer to the nation. Mary Kom is training hard for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics with the dream of winning an Olympic gold medal.
