Olympic bronze medallist M C Mary Kom was today chosen as the Most Valuable Player of India’s Incheon Asian Games campaign at a felicitation of the medal winners by contingent sponsors Samsung India here.
Mary Kom, who became the first Indian woman boxer to win a gold medal in Asian Games when she clinched the yellow metal in the Incheon Games in flyweight (-51kg) class, was named the MVP after a poll.
All the 11 individual/team gold winners, including the men’s hockey team, were in the contest.
None of the members of gold-winning men’s hockey team turned up for the felicitation event while the Indian Olympic Association was represented by its treasurer Anil Khanna.
Khanna said IOA President N Ramachandran and Secretary General Rajeev Mehta could not make it to the event as they had some “prior engagements”.
