A team of eight boxers which for the first time includes a woman are all set to head towards the British capital. The whole nation is having high hopes, as it is gradually beginning to realize its sporting potential.
The mega event in London will be attended by a bunch of enthusiastic teens and experiences coaches, who have gone through tough qualification events and now seem to be in the peak form. Vijender Singh will also be attending and will be making a record third Olympic appearance.
Singh would be playing a dual role of a competitor and a mentor for a younger lot. Five time world champion M C Mary Kom will be the sole representative from India when women’s boxing will be making its Olympic debut. Looking at her past achievements, she is one of the strongest medal contenders. There are high expectations from Kom due to the fact that she has to win just two bouts to be assured of a medal.
