    World Champion Mary Kom Is Now ‘Mary Kom OLY’

    The London Olympic bronze medallist is the only boxer across male and female categories to collect eight World Championships medals

    Six-time world champion MC Mary Kom took to Twitter to express her gratitude to the World Olympian Association (WOA) after it allowed her the use of post-nominal letters ‘OLY’.

    Kom shared the image of the certificate of recognition on her official Twitter handle on November 7th, 2019. She wrote, “Thank you so much for the recognition,” tagging WOA and International Olympic Committee.

    OLY (Olympian) are post-nominal letters granted by the WOA to athletes who have participated in the Olympic Games.

    The initiative allows Olympians to use the OLY lettering on any official documentation after their name much like when one gets a degree. In addition to the letters athletes will receive a World Olympians Association certificate celebrating their achievements when they apply for the title.

    The 36-year-old sports star hails from a small hamlet in Kangathei village in Churachandpur district of rural Manipur. Kom was honoured with Padma Bhushan and Padma Shri awards in 2013 and 2006 respectively. She is called ‘Magnificent Mary’ by sports lovers and fans.

    In the Women’s World Boxing Championships held in Ulan-Ude, Russia in October 2019, the ace Indian pugilist and Rajya Sabha member had to settle for the bronze medal after she lost her semi-final bout in the 51-kg flyweight category in a split verdict.

    The London Olympic bronze medallist is the only boxer across male and female categories to collect eight World Championships medals.
