  1. In what was arguably one of the highly-anticipated bouts, Mary Kom got the better of Nikhat Zareen in the finals of the Women's Boxing trials for the 2020 Olympic Qualifiers in the 51-kg category at the Indira Gandhi Stadium on 28th December. There was a lot of public interest going into the bout after Nikhat made a public demand for a fair Olympic selection trial. All I want is a fair chance.If I'm not given the opporunity to compete what am I training for. Sports is about FairPlay & I dont want to loose faith in my country.Jai Hind @KirenRijiju @RijijuOffice #AjaySingh @Media_SAI @DGSAI @BFI_official @kishanreddybjp @PMOIndia #TopsAthlete pic.twitter.com/t1ie62tMJy — Nikhat Zareen (@nikhat_zareen) October 17, 2019 Earlier this October, Nikhat had written an open letter to Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju. "I have been inspired by Mary Kom since I was a teenager. The best way I can do justice to this inspiration was to strive to be as great a boxer as her. And Mary Kom is too big a legend in sport to need to hide from competition and not actually defend her Olympic qualification,” she wrote in the public letter. Putting doubts to rest, six-time world champion Mary came out on top in an intense trial, winning the contest by a split 9-1 verdict. She will now fight for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics spot in the Asia-Oceanic qualifiers from 3-14 February in Wuhan, China. But, owing to the bitter row triggered by Nikhat's public demand for a trial, tension was palpable inside the boxing hall. In a bout which had very few clear punches, there were words exchanged between the boxers inside and outside the ring. There was also a vociferous protest by the representatives of Nikhat's home state boxing association. But what caught everyone's eye more than anything was Mary's conduct after the result was announced. Mary Kom defeated Nikhat Zareen to book her spot in the Olympic qualifiers. She doesn't shake Zareen's hand after the fight ð¬ð¬pic.twitter.com/BiVAw9PCSd — MMA India (@MMAIndiaShow) December 28, 2019 The 36-year-old was visibly pumped at the end of the bout before marching past her opponent Nikhat, refusing to shake her hands. When asked about her conduct following the bout, Mary told ANI: "Why should I shake hands with her? If she wants others to respect her then she should first respect others. I don't like people with such nature. Just prove your point inside the ring, not outside." Mary Kom on not shaking hands with Nikhat Zareen after the bout: Why should I shake hands with her?

The Telangana boxer claimed that she was hurt by Mary's behaviour and accused her of using "foul language" inside the ring. According to media reports, the favourable result for Mary left a few representatives from the Telangana's boxing association, Nikhat's home state, bemused as they cried foul once the verdict was declared. Boxing Federation of India (BFI) President Ajay Singh had to step in to control the situation after AP Reddy, claiming to represent the Telangana Boxing Association, vociferously protested the decision. "How will boxing grow amid this kind of politics," Reddy later told reporters after being asked to leave the ringside by BFI president and pacified by a disappointed Nikhat herself.

  2. You might have heard the story of how Mary Kom lost two kilos of weight in just four hours ahead of being weighed in for her final at Silesian Open in Poland to match her weight category and went on to win gold back in 2018. How is it that these boxers and MMA fighters can lose so much weight so quickly, while people like you and I take weeks to do so? We got in touch with one of the best boxers of our country, Amit Panghal, who let us in on some truth. View this post on Instagram The biggest joy in my life is playing for ð®ð³#chakdeindia #keepsupporting #keepbelieving #boxing #worldchampionships A post shared by ðððð ððððððð (@boxeramitpanghalofficial) on Sep 17, 2019 at 11:10am PDT 1. Liquid Consumption (Increase or Decrease?) “While we try to maintain our weight during our training camps, everything changes the day before the fight when you need to get weighed in. We pay more focus on consuming more liquid items like juices and shakes and completely avoid eating solids,” Amit tells MensXP. It is interesting because international athletes have confessed of restricting the number of calories they take in and moving away from fluid consumption (because water weight is gained more quickly) a day or two before standing on the weighing machine. 2. Speed Training In terms of exercising during this brief stint, Panghal says that he majorly focuses on “speed training” which is essentially the kind of exercise which would make you sweat a lot and that too quickly (a lot of cardio). The reason behind this is that the majority of your body weight comes from fluids and you can reduce your weight very rapidly by sweating those fluids out. Athletes from all around the world, be it boxers or fighters from inside the octagon, have admitted to participating in some rather unique methods in order to sweat more including cycling inside a sauna and sprinting while wrapping themselves in pads in order to increase their body temperature quickly and in turn sweat faster. 3. Excessive Sweating © Instagram/Mary Kom “This isn't something new and every boxer, no matter which level he plays at, does it one or two days before the weighing. We have to train hard and literally sweat it out in both morning and evening in order to bring our weight within the category,” says the pugilist. 4. Drawbacks Obviously, the byproduct of such vigorous sweating is dehydration and weakness, which is why within minutes of weighing in, athletes instantly load themselves up with a lot of calories to replenish lost energy. View this post on Instagram Someone has rightly said "Stars can't shine without darkness' #deep #sundaywisdom #thoughts #boxerboy #boxing #sundayvibes #boxerlife #goodnight #goals #ambition #preparation #practice #training #energy A post shared by ðððð ððððððð (@boxeramitpanghalofficial) on Aug 25, 2019 at 9:11am PDT “Such weakness and dehydration has happened to me just once when I was in Bulgaria, fighting in the 49kg category,” Amit says. “It was too cold for me to be able to sweat and I was having a lot of trouble in bringing my weight down. So I had to practice till midnight and I had to fight the next day. “I skipped and ran with pads till 12:30AM and still I was above my category by half a kg. So I got up at five in the morning and went to train again to get lost that extra weight.” “That day I felt every muscle in my body ache even before the fight had started and even though I won the bout, it was probably the most troublesome moment of my boxing career," he says. 5. Is It Safe? Now for the most important question of them all. Is it safe what these boxers do to rapidly bring down their weight? Restricting your caloric intake so severely for a long time can have some adverse effects on your body. It can ruin your metabolism and excessive dehydration can lead to multiple organ failures as well as leading to paralysis and even death. Short-term caloric restrictions are not dangerous; however, continues to be unideal. View the full article
  3. "The very basis of sport is the concept of fair play and the need to keep proving oneself each and every time," the premise of Nikhat Zareen's heartfelt plea to Indian Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju couldn't have been more accurate. Earlier this August, Zareen had her sights set on making the cut for the Indian contingent for the World Boxing Championships in Ulan-Ude, Russia. But, her dreams of securing a spot in the Indian contingent were handed a severe blow by the Boxing Federation of India (BFI) after it handed an automatic selection to Mary Kom on the basis of her current form and consistency. The six-time world champion from Manipur needs no introduction to boxing and there is no doubt over his skills or achievements. But, the BFI's decision to select Mary purely on the basis of her current form and not without a selection trial, robbed young Zareen of a key opportunity to proving her mettle for the country on the international stage. Hardwork breaks new ground! Ready to take the new challenges!ðªð#TuesdayMotivation #breakingnewgrounds #thestruggleisreal pic.twitter.com/RKdMO6yDQO — Nikhat Zareen (@nikhat_zareen) October 15, 2019 Undone by the free pass to Mary, the 23-year-old voiced her displeasure and sought answers from concerned officials but to no avail. Mary, against the popular perception, went on to represent India and even secured a bronze medal after losing in the semifinals of the 51kg category. It was her first medal in the new weight category of 51kg and the bronze-medal finish earlier this month etched her name in the history books as she became the first-ever boxer (both male or female) to win eight medals the prestigious World Boxing Championships. But, while Mary's performance garnered plaudits, Zareen's misfortunes continued. Last day of multi- nation training camp in Assisi, Italy. where team China, India, France, Korea, Italy, Greece, Finland, Switzerland trained together. I gained a lot of experience in this training camp. Now time to get back home and start preparation for the new season!ððð»ðªð» pic.twitter.com/RrkImQpbao — Nikhat Zareen (@nikhat_zareen) September 21, 2019 After her plea seeking a trial against Mary fell on deaf ears, Zareen was handed another blow by the BFI. Owing to her recent performance, the BFI has now decided to send the veteran Indian boxer for the Olympic qualifiers which will be held in China in February next year. Interestingly, the BFI, not until recently, was only giving direct selection to the gold and silver medal winners. But, it seems that the Indian boxing federation has moved away from the old criteria to accommodate Mary. The latest decision by the BFI has emerged as another tough and unfavourable call to Zareen who, left with no choice, penned a heartfelt plea to the Sports Minister. All I want is a fair chance.If I'm not given the opporunity to compete what am I training for. Sports is about FairPlay & I dont want to loose faith in my country.Jai Hind @KirenRijiju @RijijuOffice #AjaySingh @Media_SAI @DGSAI @BFI_official @kishanreddybjp @PMOIndia #TopsAthlete pic.twitter.com/t1ie62tMJy — Nikhat Zareen (@nikhat_zareen) October 17, 2019 In her open letter, Zareen, giving due respect to the decorated Indian boxer, highlighted her plight following the BFI's latest decision. "I have been inspired by Mary Kom since I was a teenager. The best way I can do justice to this inspiration was to strive to be as great a boxer as her. And Mary Kom is too big a legend in sport to need to hide from competition and not actually defend her Olympic qualification,” she wrote in the letter. © Instagram/@zareennikhat "I look for no favours, just fairplay. And whether Mary Kom or any other boxer qualifies after the trial, we can at least sleep at night knowing that every one of the candidate for the best possible opportunity to make India proud at Olympics,” she added. And, she's got a point there. If Mary, early in her career, was ignored like Zareen to favour a more prominent boxer, India surely wouldn't have seen her true potential, let alone celebrate the six-time world champion. A trial for selection is a process which allows young and veteran stars to be treated at par, while it provides a much-needed platform for the governing body to select the best-suited candidates purely on the basis of merit and not by their past achievements. While I have all the respect for Marykom , Fact is ,an athletes life is an offering of proof. Proof that we can be as good as yesterday. Better than yesterday. Better than tomorrows man /woman. In sport, yesterday NEVER counts. https://t.co/B0MBT3HFU0 — Abhinav Bindra OLY (@Abhinav_Bindra) October 17, 2019 While India's only individual Olympic gold medallist shooter Abhinav Bindra supported Zareen's plea seeking a trial bout against Mary, Sports Minister Rijiju, in his response to the young boxer, reiterated that the Ministry of Youth and Sports Affairs is not entitled to intervene in selection matters of any national federation, as it is deemed a violation of the Olympic Charter, before claiming that he will convey her message to the BFI. I'll surely convey to Boxing Federation to take the best decision keeping in mind the best interest of the NATION, SPORTS & ATHLETES. Although, Minister should not be involved in the selection of the players by the Sports Federations which are autonomous as per OLYMPIC CHARTER https://t.co/GqIBdtWRMp — Kiren Rijiju (@KirenRijiju) October 18, 2019 Imagine, if 23-time Olympic gold medallist Michael Phelps can abide by the fair process of undergoing selection trials, we believe Mary shouldn't have any problem either. And, in all fairness, she doesn't. #ChampionSpeak ð£ 23 yr-old @nikhat_zareen is one of India's best contemporary young boxers.ð¥ ðð»She won a silverð¥medal at the recently concluded #ThailandOpen. ðð»She speaks on her win & her preparation for #Tokyo2020 #Olympics.@RijijuOffice @BFI_official #KheloIndia ð®ï¿½ï¿½ pic.twitter.com/WeEGAiszNe — SAIMedia (@Media_SAI) August 3, 2019 Mary, who defeated Zareen in the India Open semifinal earlier this year, has maintained that she would follow the BFI guidelines on selection trials and will compete if asked by the federation. On the other hand, Zareen has made it pretty clear that if she were to lose the trial bout, should she get one, she would feel content about at least getting a chance. So, what's really stopping the BFI from giving a nod to the Mary-Zareen trial bout to pick the right candidate for Olympic qualifiers? That's a question the BFI must answer.
  4. Mary Meeker delivered a rapid-fire review at the 2019 Code Conference of her latest Internet Trends Report, widely considered to be one of the most influential and comprehensive reports on Internet trends. The report covers 11 broad areas from ecommerce to education, data growth to usage, work to immigration, and China. The report's foreword includes the following statement: This is an especially appropriate message for Invision Community admins and managers, who must not only ingest the data firehose but turn it into actionable feedback. This report is presented to Invision Community clients as a way of understanding the broader trends that shape and influence the digital world around us, and to hopefully spur thoughtful conversation on how to thrive as an online community through 2019 and beyond. Here are highlights from the report, especially selected for clients of Invision Community. More International - Global internet penetration surpassed 51% in 2018, which means more than half of the world's population are Internet users. Certain regions have very different growth patterns. Asia Pacific already contains more Internet users than the rest of the world combined, yet less than half of its users are on the Internet. In contrast, North America is virtually saturated. Growth of new users is getting harder, except for China, India, and Indonesia which show the most promise of new users. More Ecommerce - Ecommerce is a rapidly rising a major portion of retail sales. Ecommerce growth is a strong 12% year over year. Physical retail growth is 2% year over year. More Online Advertising on Mobile - Internet advertising is continuing to increase overall at 22% year over year, with all of the new growth dedicated to mobile advertising spending. Spending on desktop advertising is flatlining. More Hours Online - Online media usage increased by 7% year over year in the USA, with all of the growth on mobile. Desktop usage flatlined in 2013 and even decreased in the past three years. Out of online time, Facebook, Youtube, WhatsApp, and WeChat dominate the global time spent online. Mobile use also surpassed time spent on TV for the first time in 2018. More Short-form Video - Short videos like Instagram Stories, Facebook Stories, and WhatsApp Status are one of the newest trends to explosively grow in the past 3 years. More Opportunity for the Underserved - Square is a popular credit card processor and merchant services provider. The fastest area of growth comes from new users in the lowest-income metropolitans in the USA versus the highest-income metropolitan areas in the USA, with 58% of its businesses from females and 35% from minority-owned businesses. More Images - For two decades, users on the Internet have been dramatically ramping up image creation and image sharing. Image sharing has also evolved, with leading platforms like Instagram adding new features like video stories and collaborative story-telling. More Interactive Gaming - Interactive gaming continues to be a dominant Internet trend with 2.4 Billion users, an increase of 6% year over year. Interactive gaming is social in nearly all ways, with real-time play + talk, shared environments, collective goals, and in-game social networks. One of the leading gaming-related platforms is Discord. More Digital Payments - Digital payments continue to be more efficient, now driving 59% of all global payments. More Data Personalization - The amount of data being collected has exploded in the past decade. Successful companies now deploy data as a core part of their workflow to improve customer satisfaction. Retail customers like sharing data if it gives them a better experience. More Negativity and Polarization - With more people than ever coming online, there continues to be usage concern over problematic content and activity. We will continue to see a world that gets more polarized and divisive due to less filtering, more amplification of extreme content, more vivid live images and videos. More Internet Censorship - The early days of a free Internet are over. We are living in a 'splinternet,' where your online experiences are increasingly determined by local regulation. Truly free Internet decreased with governments increasing surveillance and censorship. More Trust in an Open Internet - On the other hand, an open Internet and online consumer reviews boost multi-sided accountability that ensure safety of products and services, make companies accountable to consumers, and make consumers feel confident on their purchases. On AirBNB, a popular online booking platform for short-term rentals, 70% of guests leave a review. The reviews are fundamental to building trust on AirBNB. More China Internet - China continues to be the world's success story, with global growth that underscore its superpower status. It is a rapidly rising country with room to grow for most macroeconomic and technical trends including urbanization, disposable income per capita, share of world exports, mobile internet users, and cellular internet growth. Some of the notable Chinese apps include WeChat, Meituan, and Alipay. CONCLUSION Online communities have been a part of the online experience from the beginning through email listservs, chat rooms, bulletin boards, Usenet groups, multiplayer dungeons, and more. We will always be a part of humanity's need to connect, to share, and to relate with similar people but our methods and technology will evolve. The world is more mobile, more pictures and videos, more international, more polarized and open to abuse, and also more connected than ever before. As more people come online, as more methods to communicate flourish, as the technology and infrastructure around the Internet continue to mature, I hope you find inspiration in the 2019 Internet Trends Report to grasp upon these macro trends and find new opportunities to connect and serve your communities better.

  5. There used to be a time when Chungneijang Mary Kom Hmangte was a completely unknown name. Back in the day, with zero videos of her bouts online and not even a single news channel covering her progress, if you'd told her that one day, she is going to be ranked number 1 in the whole world by the International Boxing Federation (AIBA), she would have knocked you out cold with an uppercut for mocking her. #WWCHs2018 Finals - Light Fly (48kg)@MangteC (IND) defeats Mi Hyang Kim (PRK) and becomes 2018 AIBA World Champion!! Congratulations Mary ð¥ð¥ðª#AIBAFamily #ChampsBornHere @BFI_official pic.twitter.com/wlSLmbJHvB — AIBA (@AIBA_Boxing) November 24, 2018 When she was only 13, Mary knew that she wanted to become a professional boxer. Despite her soon-to-be coach Leishangthem Ibomcha Singh, who was responsible for bringing up around 50 international medal winners from within the state of Manipur, constantly challenging her, and her aspirations of becoming a pugilist, Mary, like any stubborn teenager, stuck to what she wanted. Living in an insurgency-bound Imphal, Mary's journey to success was full of constant terror and adversities. With endless reports of kidnappings, shootings and bombings ever since Manipur's merging with India, the idea of 'do whatever your heart says' wasn't exactly a number one priority for the people living there. In fact, the situation was so bad up there, that even Mary Kom's own father-in-law was murdered by the insurgents soon after she got married to Onler Kom in 2005. While there's no denying Mary Kom's hard work and raw passion for the sport that has taken her this far in life, it is Onler Kom, Mary's husband who has been her anchor during the experience. Full of compassion and regard for her wife, Onler has never backed out of supporting her dreams. “I knew her dreams and was ready to help her in every way," Onler told The Times of India. “I had my own dreams, but when I came to know her it changed… I married her for her simplicity and her willingness to become a successful sportswoman.” View this post on Instagram “A man's success is measured by what his wife and children say about him. Money and accomplishments mean nothing if you let your home fail.” With my hubby @onler_kom #travelling @selfclicked #blessings A post shared by Mary Kom (@mcmary.kom) on Dec 5, 2018 at 3:37am PST Despite the support, what a lot of people do not realise is how much being a mother of three can take a toll on your professional career. With a lot of extra responsibilities on her shoulders as compared to any of her opponents along with the growing age, the 35-year-old, somehow, manages not only to take out time to train herself but also to train nearly 130 young and aspiring students at the Mary Kom Regional Boxing Foundation, an academy initiated by the boxer and her husband to inspire, motivate and train India's finest pugilists of all time. “This Boxing Academy is a reality of my dream of creating a Centre of excellence to produce the best boxing champions for India,” Mary Kom conveys her message on the website. Mary once said that there lies a story of struggle behind every medal that she's ever won. In her long, successful and inspirational career, the Arjuna and Padma Shri awardee has made and broken various records whilst becoming the most successful boxer in the history of Women's World Championships by winning a record 6th gold medal last year. Recently ranked Number One in the world, Mary Kom has no intentions of throwing in the towel just yet as she has already begun preparing for Tokyo Olympics 2020.
  6. Mary Kom recently booked her spot in the pages of history with her 6th consecutive win in a boxing championship at the AIBA Women's World Championships. Manipur-born Mary Kom is by far one the greatest boxing champions the country has seen in recent times and it is not just her talent in the boxing ring that's commendable. © Instagram The entire nation has witnessed her grit and determination time and again, but her skills on display at every championship is an absolute treat to the eyes. Her moves are lethal and so craftily planted that the opponent hardly truly recovers from her take. However, if you felt that boxing is the only talent Mary Kom boasts of, you couldn't have been more wrong! Recently, at an event where Mary Kom was in attendance, the boxer took to the stage and sang her own rendition of the classic Lata Mangeshkar song, 'Ajeeb Dastan Hai Yeh' from the movie 'Dil Apna Aur Preet Parai'. Her soulful rendition of the song was well received by everyone present at the event, as she serenaded to the karaoke music of the song. The video has since gone viral across various social media platform. Imagine the amount of talent she possesses! She really is a complete package, and sure has a lot of feathers added to her hat. We shall be looking forward to seeing more of her hidden talents in the time to come, but in the meantime we're celebrating her massive win just like the rest of the country.
  7. Proving his mettle as an internationally acclaimed shooter, Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore has brought many laurels to his country. Plying his trade in Double Trap Shooting, he won 25 international medals at various championships including the coveted silver medal at the 2004 Summer Olympics. If his exploits in competitive shooting established him as a popular marksman, Rathore's reign as India's Sports Minister has been cherished and hailed by sportspersons and fans alike. The 48-year-old continues to strive for the betterment of Indian sports and the athletes across the country. But, it's his latest actions that have once again won our hearts. The Sports Minister recently visited the Indira Gandhi stadium in New Delhi where he helped India's acclaimed boxer Mary Kom train. In a thrilling practice session, Rathore was seen wearing punching mitts and helping Mary perfect some of her signature moves. While Rathore tried to catch the Indian boxer by surprise by swift movements, Mary looked up to task, landing perfect punches close to his face. Seeing is believing. Thank you Hon'ble @Ra_THORe ji for all the supports and encouragement's. #PunchMeinHainDum @BFI_official @Media_SAI @IndiaSports pic.twitter.com/0lEty9NIEb — Mary Kom (@MangteC) November 1, 2018 Later, Mary took to Twitter and shared the exciting video that showed her sparring with Rathore. "Seeing is believing. Thank you Hon'ble @Ra_THORe ji for all the supports and encouragement's," she tweeted. While Mary lauded the support of Rathore ahead of Women's Boxing World Championships - slated to begin from 15th November in the capital, the netizens praised the Indian Sports Minister for his sweet gesture.

  9. This file photo taken on October 01, 2014, shows gold medallist India´s Mary Kom reacting after being declared the winner of the women´s flyweight (48-51kg) boxing final match against Kazakhstan´s Shekerbekova Zhaina during the 2014 Asian Games at the Seonhak Gymnasium in Incheon. 1 BANGALORE: She is a five-time world champion, mother of three and member of parliament, but Indian boxer Mary Kom believes that at 35 there is plenty more glory in the ring to come. Dubbed "Magnificent Mary" for a glittering career that has already inspired a Bollywood biopic, veteran Kom last month defied critics who wrote her off by winning a record fifth Asian women's championships title in Vietnam. Driven on by the legacy of three-time world heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali, she has now set her sights on the Commonwealth Games in April, and even the Tokyo Olympics in 2020 where she hopes to improve on the bronze medal she won in London. "I am really inspired by Muhammad Ali, who was a legend across the world. He is my mentor and my only inspiration (is) his achievements," she told AFP. "And he was such a great boxer -- that is why I am still able to do this." The Asian title in November was her first gold at international level since winning the Asian Games in 2014. But Kom has long rejected the doubts of those who have highlighted her age and questioned her ability to combine boxing with being a mother and an MP in India´s upper house. "I am still fit. Some people talk about the X-factor and say ´she cannot perform´. That is always the mindset. "So I say there is no X-factor ... I have more experience and I am getting better and better," added Kom. In her bid for gold, she has dropped back down to the 48kg category she fought in when she first grabbed headlines at the 2001 world championships. "The Games will soon be here," she said referring to the Commonwealth event in Australia´s Gold Coast. "I am trying my best to improve day-by-day." Kom said the Indian government and much-criticised Boxing Federation of India (BFI) were providing "good facilities" so she has no excuses for not being ready. This file photo taken on October 01, 2014, shows gold medallist India´s Mary Kom being splashed with cold water between rounds of the women´s flyweight (48-51kg) boxing final match against Kazakhstan´s Shekerbekova Zhaina during the 2014 Asian Games at the Seonhak Gymnasium in Incheon. Photo: AFP 1 Early struggle It is a far cry from recent years. Infighting in the Indian federation led to Kom failing to make the 2016 Rio Olympics. No Indian boxers took part in qualifying. "It was very unfortunate because the reason was there was no federation, they were fighting each other to hold power, be president," said Kom. But businessman Ajay Singh´s election as BFI president last year has ended the turmoil. Like her hero Ali, Kom had her own struggles growing up, with her rise from an impoverished family in the remote northeastern state of Manipur being made into a 2014 Bollywood movie starring Priyanka Chopra. "In the beginning, it was difficult to get my own gloves, it was difficult to even buy one glove and my family did not support me in the beginning," Kom said. "They were worried that if I got injured, who will take the responsibility? "Everything moves with money only. If we want something to eat or to buy clothes or do anything, without money you can´t do anything," she said with a laugh. Blessed with three sons, Kom is now happy juggling roles as a mother, lawmaker and gym owner. But she insists that boxing remains her top priority. "That is obviously very difficult. People might also say how can she maintain all these things? How can she keep performing? It is a question of will and mindset," she said. "Whether I am going to a parliament session or programme or my own personal programme, that is secondary. The first priority is training, the rest comes second and that is why I am still performing."
  10. The career of a sportsperson can easily be divided into three pivotal stages: the beginning, middle and the end. Making an impact early in their careers can do wonders to their confidence, while making the most of their prime and, in turn, maintaining consistency can surely prolong their stint in their respective sports. But, as important as the beginning, the middle, and the last stage of their career is probably the trickiest. The consistency of their performance is no the longer the same. Father Time tends to catch up, their bodies degrade and the impeccable fitness levels that once helped them reach the pinnacle of the sport gradually drop a notch down. And, with the young guns breathing down their necks, athletes are eventually left facing the perennial question of when to call it quits and bow out from a sport they dominated all this while. Some athletes give in to the pressure and hang up their boots, while others have been seen overstaying their welcome to eventually become the subject of immense criticism - say, someone like MS Dhoni. © Reuters But, then there are those who accept the limitations at hand and work towards their strengths, eventually bringing out the fighter in themselves to shut the critics up, win back fans and turn the trickiest stage into probably the best phase of their career. And, no Indian athlete embodies that 'fighter spirit' better than MC Mary Kom does. For a large part of her career, she had no sponsors. The Indian boxing star even, on a few occasions, paid for her travel to participate in competitions and camps. But, since there's no shortcut to success, Mary defied all odds and came through with flying colours to dominate a sport long associated with men, especially in a country where women still continue to lurk in the shadows of their male counterparts. © BCCL At the age of 34, her hardwork and perseverance has once again paid off as she bagged the gold medal at the Asian Boxing Championships in Vietnam. Participating in the light flyweight category, the 'Magnificent Mary' defeated North Korea's Kim Hyang-Mi 5-0 (unanimous decision) in the summit clash on 8 November. It was her sixth medal in the Asian Women's Boxing Championships and a staggering fifth gold medal, having won four gold medals and one silver in previous editions of the tournament. But, the lack of expectations on her comeback bid is what makes her latest feat even more important. © Reuters Ahead of the tournament, not many were rooting for the Manipuri boxer, especially due to her noticeable absence from the ring. And, the fact that she was marking a return to her favoured 48kg category after five years only raised doubts about her success in the coveted tournament. But, those who know the gutsy lady from Manipur wouldn't have been surprised by her absolute domination in Vietnam. She did it in the past, and if there was anyone to do it again, it would have arguably been Mary. Alienating her critics, the 34-year-old mother of three channelized all her energy and maintained focus on her goal to eventually repeat the heroics of her yesteryears. However, where Mary has excelled, Dhoni seems to have fallen short. © Reuters Once labelled as world's best finisher in international cricket, Dhoni is far from the dashing batsman that tormented opposition bowlers and enthralled Indian fans. His fitness levels are great (watch him take those singles), his know-how of the game still makes him an ideal player on the field and his wicket-keeping skills are just marvellous. But, when it comes to striking the ball, the Jharkhand cricketer is no longer the marauding batsman who could hammer at will. While he has long been known for his calm and composed approach, Dhoni of the present day seems to have been affected by the consistent criticism coming his way. With people questioning his place in the T20 format (as of now), the pressure seems to be getting to our 'Captain Cool' as he chases the ghosts of the past. © Reuters And, this is where Dhoni needs to take a leaf out of Mary's book. Just like the Indian boxing sensation, Dhoni needs to use all the criticism, work towards his strengths and let his willow do the talking. For someone as experienced as Dhoni, we'd say he is just a blitz away from shutting the self-proclaimed cricket pundits. Thus, as we celebrate the triumphant return of Indian boxing's postergirl, let's hope that her never-say-die attitude not only inspires Dhoni, but also those who continue to preach that they're not good enough and must quit.
