Mary Kom Makes History

India's Mary Kom reasserted her place as one of her country's sporting superstars when she claimed their first-ever boxing gold in Korea.

She fought off Kazakhstan's Zhaina Shekerbekova in the 51kg category, coming from behind to claim a historic 2-0 victory.

The 31-year-old mother of three was facing up to an opponent six years her junior, and initially Mary Kom was outwitted by Shekerbekova, the Kazakh prevailing in the first round.

However, the London 2012 Olympic bronze medallist changed her approach and soon gained the upper hand on her opponent through pure aggression. She was the clear winner come the bout's end.

India's women's cricket captain Mithali Raj summed up the sentiments of her country towards the so-called "Magnificent Mary":

Indeed, it was a categorical victory and a day of history for India at the Asian Games in Incheon.

Japan Upset in Women's Football

Defending women's football gold medallists Japan were upset in their final on Wednesday as North Korea took the top prize with a 3-1 victory.

The Japanese were significantly outplayed as goals from Kim Yun-Mi and captain Ra Un-Sim took the North Koreans into a 2-0 lead before Aya Miyama pulled one back.

Ho Un Byol sealed the win late on to confirm her side's revenge on the Japanese for beating them in the final four years ago. The women's final also included these two sides in 2006, the Koreans prevailing on that occasion.

Winning coach Kim Kwang-Min commented on the local support his side received in Incheon, per dnaindia.com:

"South Koreans cheered for us and when I looked at them I realised we are one people, and I saw their desire for unification."

The hosts themselves beat Vietnam to claim the bronze in the women's competition, and Thursday sees the two Korean countries go head-to-head in the men's gold-medal match in what should be a terrific encounter.
