Star boxer MC Mary Kom has been given a positive sign for her dream come true. India has now decided to seek a wildcard entry for the five-time world champion.
Mary Kom had failed to qualify for the Olympics. She was required to make at least the semifinals to be assured of an Olympic berth.
"She has been a phenomenal athlete and looking at her overall contribution to the sport, we have decided to request for a wildcard for her. However, her application will be among the many that the International Boxing Association (AIBA) will examine before taking a final decision," told chairman of the ad-hoc committee currently running boxing in India, Kishen Narsi.
