Mary Kom advances to final of 48kg with 5-0 verdict

Press Trust of India  |  Gold Coast 

Indian legend M C (48kg) advanced to final with a comprehensive triumph over Sri Lanka's Dilrukshi Koddithuwak here today.

It was a battle of veterans as 35-year-old took on the 39-year-old Dilrukshi.

Mary Kom, also a sitting in India, prevailed 5-0 in a dull contest where clean punches were few and far.

Despite the height advantage Koddithuwak struggled to connect for most part.

She picked up pace in the final three minutes but drew from her own well of experience to thwart her.

The five-time world champion and Olympic bronze-medallist Indian is competing in her maiden CWG.
