London Olympics
Qinhuangdao, China: Star Indian woman boxer MC Mary Kom (51kg) has qualified for the 2012 London Olympics.

Though the five-time world champion failed to make it to the semi finals of the ongoing World Championships here as she lost on Wednesday to the world No 2 Nicola Adams, the latter's win over Russia's world champion Yelena Savelyeva in the semis ensured Mary Kom's participation in the upcoming Olympics.

Women's boxing will make its Olympic debut in three weight categories in London - 51kg, 60kg and 75kg. Asia has two slots in the 51kg division and Mary Kom has filled the second one after Asian Games gold-medalist Ren Cancan of China.
