BFI should consider doing away with selection trials for performers: Mary Kom

  • Kom was selected for the World Boxing Championship without the trial and the decision became a topic of debate at that time

For most part of the second one, Mary Kom has talked about how eSports can be the sport for the younger generation. In a year's time, Mary Kom may be on the flight to Tokyo and fight for that medal. She had then written a letter to the Boxing Federation of India (BFI) alleging that she had been stopped from participating in the trial despite having a scheduled trial bout.

Six-time world champion and Olympic medallist Mary Kom raked up controversy at a press conference on Wednesday by suggesting that proven performers should not be made to undergo selection trials. Earlier, it had emerged that the Boxing Federation of India (BFI) cancelled trials in Mary Kom's 51kg category for the World Boxing Championships and had sent her name for it based on her past performances. "I will not decide", she said. "Those boxers should get direct quota to tournaments". "Did Saina Nehwal and PV Sindhu give any trial?" she said. Back in 2014, with her Olympic bronze still in recent memory, she competed (and lost to Pinky Jangra) in the selection trials for the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

While badminton works on a structure of world rankings which determine who qualifies for the World championship, there is no such system in boxing and the national federations decide the entries according to their own stipulated criterias.

Mary Kom recused herself from the choice committee's proceedings after a media storm on battle of curiosity. The point of contention was her personal coach Chhote Lal Yadav's application for the Dronacharya award.

In Mary Kom's case, as with women's boxing in general, head guards are anyway a standard feature in trials and competitions. "These two years - 2019 and 2020 - are very important for me", said Mary.

"I have recommended so many names in the past. This time I don't know what happened, the media created a controversy, so I recused myself", she stated.

Mary Kom was part of the awards selection committee for Dronacharya in 2016 as well but her coach was not in fray at that time. But on August 6, the BFI informed Zareen that her bout was postponed to August 7. As such, Mary Kom's arguments in favour of the recent decision of the BFI hold little merit. But with all the build up she will have to do the same when she takes the ring in October in Russian Federation. And with a year to go for Tokyo Games, the World Championship will be a good assessment of where she stands in the 51 kg weight category.
