Five-time world champion women's boxer hopes to win India Olympic medal

Five-time world champion M.C. Mary Kom is hoping to win India an Olympic medal when women's boxing is introduced at the London games this summer.

The 29-year-old Kom, who has two children, says she is in her best form and has a good chance of winning a medal at the 2012 Olympics. Kom says that qualifying for the London Games at the World Championship at Qinhuangdao in China later this month will bring her closer to realizing her "biggest dream."

Kom has competed in the 46-kilogram and 48-kilogram events in the past. At the Olympics, she will be participating in the 51-kilogram event, which will be one of three women's categories at the London games.
