Magnificent Mary On Gold Spree

Mary Kom wins record-breaking sixth gold medal at World Boxing Championships

M.C. Mary Kom's latest victory, which has led her to become the first woman boxer to claim six World Championship gold medals, is a testimony to women power and an example of how age and motherhood have not stopped her from chasing her dreams, said Indian film fraternity members, hailing the "magnificent" athlete's feat. The Manipur boxer defeated Ukraine's x 22-year-old Hanna Okhota today in New Delhi.

Mary Kom is the world's first boxer to reach seven times in the final of the World Championship. She won Gold in the 2002, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2010 editions as well. Mary Kom has rewritten history with this win by clinching her 6th World title.

Big B took to his official Instagram account to post a picture of boxing gloves gifted to him by Mary Kom and congratulated the boxer, alongside a heartfelt caption which read, "Mary Kom. what huge honour you bring to the country". Mary Kom, has won many tournaments since returning to the sport after becoming a mother.

Boxing Federation of India (BFI) president Ajay Singh also said that the world body has given full marks to the organisation and described it as the best championships ever in recent years.

JR Smith doesn't believe Cavaliers' talk of making playoffs
The JR Smith era in Cleveland has come to an end as the wine and gold have announced that swish will no longer be with the team. With Smith gone, the Cavaliers have just three players - Love, Tristan Thompson and Channing Frye - left from their title team.

There was little Mary Kom could do to stop her tears.

"First of all, I would like to thank all my fans".

India could have had another world champion in New Delhi but Sonia Chahal had to settle for a silver after she lost her final bout of the 57kg weight category to Gabriele Wahner of Germany. It looks like Priyanka Chopra has made the biopic too early because Mary Kom just keeps getting better! Amidst the exchange of blows, Hanna displayed some gamesmanship and invited the Indian to land more shots. She is also the only Indian female boxer to win a medal at the Olympics (bronze in London 2012). "Now, I am smarter and try to find out the game of my opponent and then think out mine in the ring itself".

Talking about her record, a joyous Mary told reporters, "I want to dedicate the medal to all the people behind my hard-work".
