Former Olympic bronze medallist MC Mary Kom said her north-east Indian impression is doing more harm than great when it came to selection process. The 32-year-old boxer broke down into tears and blamed the Indian selectors showed biased inclination amid boxing selection and trials.
“Here and there I feel extremely upset. An arbitrators’ percentage and judges don’t support me however I wouldn’t care. OK I am from north-east, no issue, yet I am still an Indian,” Mary Kom quoted her grief.
The five-time title holders was dropped from the Indian group at the 2014 Commonwealth Games and Pinky Jangra, who contends in the same weight classification as her was chosen for play.
Mary Kom stated that Pinky was continuously favoured by the selectors in spite when she lost her game to Manipur boxer. The partiality against north-east Indians is not new to the nation. Be that as it may as an athlete, who has demonstrated her skills at the most elevated events, confronts such issue, the circumstance appears to be quite a bit alarming.
There are such a large number of irregularities in the selection process. Pinky Jangra, I generally defeat her on most of the occasions and demonstrate it to get a gold medal in each competition however they (boxing selectors) keep on supporting her.Pinky was victorious over Mary in the trail of 51 kg class before the Commonwealth Games yet the Manipuri boxer guaranteed it was ineffectively judged.
Mary Kom, be that as it may, hasn’t surrendered her hope yet and exclaimed that she had taken it in her step.
“It is still alright. I will substantiate myself in the ring,” Mary Kom ended her conversation.
