Mary Kom is all set to represent India once again at the Olympics. She booked her place for the games last month and will be looking to clinch another medal for the nation when she steps into the ring.

The Olympics, however, is a year away and Kom is currently in her home and riding through the Coronavirus Lockdown just like the entire nation. And amidst all this, she was recently interviewed by the New Indian Express where the boxing legend talked about a string of topics.

Kom noted that the young boxers should keep a tab on their attitude changes in the face of achievements.

“The sports ministry has given us a lot. Boxing Federation of India has supported us. We got everything from them. The problem is the boxers. When some of the boxers make it to the international level, whether small or big, their attitude is totally different (changes). If they are going to have the wrong attitude, then I don’t think they will last long. Be humble. Work hard and be sincere. Be honest,” she said.

She also went on to note that the young boxers do not have the respect and humility that should be there.

“Young boxers don’t have the respect, they don’t have the humility. Before they are nothing, and after they achieve something at an international level, it’s totally different. That’s the problem. If that’s the attitude, arrogance... I don’t think things will improve,” she added.

The 37-year old also noted that she the postponement of the Olympics will not have an impact on her plans to win a medal.
