“We landed in Poland at round 3-3:30 in the morning and the  general weigh in was at 730 am. I was couple of kilograms above 48kg the category i compete in at that point,” the five time world champion has said.

“So, I had four hours to shed that or I would have been disqualified at the time of general weigh in. But I did skipping for an hour at a stretch and just like that, I was ready,” said the 35 year old Mary Kom.

“Thankfully, the flight we traveled was nearly empty so I could sleep with my legs  outstretched, ensuring that I was not stiff at the time of landing there. Otherwise i would not know how i will be able to commit.” added Mary Kom.

She was the lone gold medal winner at the tournament in Poland, a testimony to her incredible longevity and also a reflection of lack of depth  in Indian Women’s Boxing.

” The World Championship in two months in Delhi will be another test. I can only say I will do my level best.”  She also said that she never promises medals and will not do it now either. She is afraid of making huge statements because in a contact sport like this we never know what happens.
