Mary Kom ,who has a record of six time world champion, has been crowned as the best female athlete in Asia.
It was in a ceremony organised by Asian Sportswriters Union (AIPS Asia) in Malaysia.
She also bagged the title of the ‘winner of the prestigious award’ alongside South Korean and Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-min, who won the award for the best male athlete.
Renowned sports journalist Subodh Malla Barua accepted the award on Mary’s behalf as she could not make it.
AIPS Asia, an organization representing Asian sportswriters since 1978, was holding this award ceremony to honour Asian athletes who have excelled at the highest level.
The name Mary Kom inspires a lot of females as she worked hard ,day & night to achieve her goals.Being a mom she had a lot of other challenges as well but she did not stop going ahead for her dreams and rest is history.We are so proud of this Manipur boxer.
