Mary Kom is set to seal a berth at the upcoming Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, her second Olympic appearance later tonight. The star boxer has achieved it all, she is a 6-time World Champion, London Olympics bronze medallist and has won many more accolades. She has had a movie made on her!
There are few things that are not known about Mary, but here are five interesting and lesser known facts —
#5 A high school dropout
Mary could not complete her high school education because she never had a penchant for studies. She decided to call it quits to devote more time to boxing when she was in class 7 at St Xavier’s School. However, later on, she would go on to appear for the final exams in private and even go on to complete her graduation from Churachadpur College, also in private.
