After the remarkable (read, golden) victory of Mirabai Chanu, Sanjita Chanu and Manika Batra (go, #GirlPower!) in the Commonwealth Games of 2018, Mary Kom has given us another reason to smile. The 35-year-old boxer from Manipur achieved the accolade after defeating Northern Ireland's Kristina O'Hara in the 45-48kg category final on Saturday. #PunchMeinHaiDum and rightly so, don't you think?
Congratulations Mary Kom, we couldn't be prouder.
