Tokyo Olympics: Mary Kom loses to Ingrit Valencia

Mary Kom

On Thursday, India's boxing legend Mary Kom's dream for a second Olympic medal came to an end in the pre-quarterfinals of the Tokyo Olympics. In a tough Round of 16 encounters in the Women's Flyweight category, the London Olympics bronze medallist was defeated by Colombian third seed Ingrit Valencia through split decision.

Mary Kom proved why she is one of the most popular athletes in the country when she came up with a reply at the Kokugikan Arena that symbolised her graceful acceptance of defeat. The mother of four gave it her all in what was likely her final Olympic appearance, pushing the Rio Olympics bronze medalist to her limits.

Mary was eliminated in the Round of 16 by the slimmest of margins, losing a 3-2 decision to Colombia's Ingrit. It was Ingrit's first victory over the Indian fighter in three tries. Mary didn't get off to the ideal start in the match on Thursday, as Ingrit went on the attack right away. Mary was put on the back foot early on by the 32-year-old, who won the first round 4-1.
