 September 17, 2018: M C Mary Kom lived up to her favourites tag to clinch gold in the 13th International Silesian Women's Boxing Championships in Gliwice, Poland. Manisha (54kg), the other India boxer, lost in her final bout to settle for a silver.

Mary Kom (48kg) prevailed 5-0 against Kazakhstan's Aigerim Kassanayeva in the final of the boxing event to win her third gold medal this year.

The five-time world champion returned to the ring after recovering from some niggles that kept her out of the Asian Games in Jakarta. Her other two gold medals this year came in the inaugural India Open in Delhi and the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast. She also won a silver at the prestigious Strandja Memorial Tournament in Bulgaria.

The 35-year-old former Olympic bronze-medallist was in her elements against a taller opponent, displaying a brilliant counter-attacking strategy. The nimble-footed Indian showed sharp reflexes and did not allow a clear shot to Kassanayeva through the bout.
