"It is a very special medal for me like all others I have won because every medal has a story behind it," Mary Kom, 35, said. "I am delighted to be in the final. I was expecting a tough fight but I managed to figure Komura out early enough. I am already looking towards the final but I am not going to think too much and put pressure on myself," Olympic bronze-medallist and a five-time world champion added. Mary Kom returned to her preferred weight category after five years of competing in 51kg.
