Mary praying for Rio berth

Boxing champ MC Mary Kom is hoping and praying she gets a wildcard to the Rio de Janeiro Olympics this year. She narrowly missed out in the qualifiers earlier this year. “If I get a wildcard, I will surely try and get another medal for India. I request my fans to support me and pray that I get a wildcard,” said the mother of three who was in Bangalore to endorse packages foods by Thai company CP Foods.

So if she fails to get a wildcard for Rio, is she looking at Tokyo 2020 then? “Yes, if they add more categories in Tokyo, I will go and try and get a medal. If there is a 48kg category, I can go and win a medal.” She won the bronze medal at the London Olympics in 2012 in the 51kg category.
