New Delhi: M.C. Mary Kom, India's sole woman boxer at the London Olympics, will train with her male counterparts in Patiala ahead of the summer extravaganza.
The five-time world champion had lady luck to thank as she qualified for the Olympics after England's Nicola Adams advanced to the finals of the World Boxing Championships in Qinhuangdao, China. After Mary Kom lost in the quarterfinals to Nicola Wednesday, the Indian's Olympic qualification hinged on the latter's progress in the tournament.
"I need to improve all my aspects of fighting. I have to workout more and I have to improve mentally. I have seen a lot of videos of my rivals and analysed them a lot. I will be going to Patiala to train with the boys and I think that will improve me further," she told reporters here Monday.
