London Olympics 2012 Boxing: Can Mary Kom make it to the final?Zeenews Sports Bureau

London: MC Mary Kom will enter boxing ring on Wednesday with the hope of achieving yet another historical feat.

DAY 11 HIGHLIGHTS » I PIC GALLERY » I INDIAN SCHEDULE: DAY 12 »

She became the first Indian women boxer to claim an Olympic medal on Monday by entering the semifinal of women`s 51 kg category defeating Maroua Rahali of Tunisia.

Now, if Mary defeats Nicola Adams of Great Britain, she will become the first Indian boxer to book a final showdown and thus be assured of at least a silver medal.

So far it has been a successful campaign for the diminutive boxer from Manipur who increased her weight from 48kg to 51kg in order for her to be eligible for participation in the prestigious quadrennial event.

The mother of two has been a five-time world champion in the 48kg category.

She defeated Karolina Michalczuk of Poland 19-14 in the pre quarterfinal and then dominated Maroua Rahali of Tunisia with a 16-5 scoreline that ensured India another medal in the 2012 London Olympics.

Her bout starts at 6:15 pm (IST). Log in to Zeenews.com for the live coverage of the event.
