MC In addition to her preparations for the 2019 Commonwealth Games in Australia, Mary Kom, a six-time World Champion, wants to provide a platform for budding boxers.
Olympic bronze medalist stated she was withdrawing from the tournament to assist the next generation in establishing themselves in the international arena and gaining crucial exposure and experience at essential contests. “Right now, the only thing on my mind is the preparations for the Commonwealth Games.”
Imphal, the capital of Manipur, will host its first-ever women’s football match on June 5th, owing Olympian fighter Mary Kom’s sponsorship. The prize was also presented in a high-octane atmosphere at The Lalit in New Delhi, where the iron lady herself presided over the presentation.
The All Manipur Football Association will oversee the North East Women’s Football League, organized by Anantpura Sports Event Pvt. Ltd. and played under the auspices of the league.
There were also representatives from the All Manipur Football Association, including Mr. Ratan Kumar Singh, the association’s president, as well as Mr. L Jyotirmay Roy (director of Anantpura Sports), M. Anas Pathan (tournament coordinator), and Kirti Mishra, the association’s secretary (Mrs. India Worldwide).
In her comments on the new league, Mary Kom said, “The league will be a game-changer in the North East, where women have immense potential to establish themselves in sports despite so many challenges and restrictions.” A large amount of government and business support and contribution are the only things that are required.”
“I do anticipate that, notwithstanding my excitement for the sport of boxing, ladies in the North East will be equally excited about other sports.”
They should demonstrate their toughness and determination on the sporting field. “I believe that young ladies from the northeastern states have the potential to achieve great success for India in international sporting competitions,” she continued. “The motto of this event is to promote women’s empowerment and encourage more young people to participate in and accomplish in sports,” ASEPL Chairman Amin Pathan stated during the event’s press conference. Mary Kom is one of several former athletes who rose to prominence in India due to the country’s illustrious sporting history. In football, the world’s most popular sport, the time has come for women from the Northeastern United States to set a similar example of sportsmanship and excellence.
