New Delhi, Aug 6 (IANS) Indian boxer M.C. Mary Kom’s husband Onler Kom said Monday that the pugilist made the country proud after assuring the country its fourth Olympic medal from the 2012 London Games.
“Every Indian will be proud of her. She was quite determined that she would do well and she has done that. She has won the medal she always wanted at last. She has always done well for her country,” Onler Kom told TV channels.
Onler Kom also said that he spoke to his wife before the bout and told her to be careful.
“I told her not to fight in a rough manner, to use all the technique. And she did well. This was the only thing missing from her career and now she has it,” he added.
The five-time World Champion, a mother of twin sons, qualified for the semi-final beating Tunisia’s Maroua Rahali in the pre-quarterfinals of the 51kg category. Losing semi-finalists are awarded with a bronze medal.
In the semi-final, Mary Kom will be facing Nicola Adams of Great Britain.
