2 Indian Women Box Their Way To Gold!

In India, Sports on November 4, 2009 at 10:50 am

MC Mary Kom, the World Champion boxer, and Kavita Goyat both won gold for India in the Asian Indoor Games!

MC Mary Kom is not without controversy, having previously been suspended for her apparent tantrums after her national championship loss.

Yet she has won the coveted Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna (RGKR), which is India’s highest honour given for achievement in sports.  The words “Khel Ratna” literally translate to “Sports Gem” in Hindi. The award is named after the late Rajiv Gandhi, former Prime Minister of India. (Wikipedia).  

And she does seem to be India’s hopeful for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.  We wish her the best of luck in bringing more Gold back to India, but minus the tantrums or unsportsmanship-like behavior.
