On the eve of Mary Kom's Asian Games gold medal bout against Kazakhstan’s Zhaina Shekerbekova, the gloves were off, as she was busy playing the doting mother. Her seven-year-old twin sons had demanded a toy turtle and a Spiderman costume.

It was toys first for ‘Super Mom’ MC Mary Kom before she toyed with her opponent in the Asian Games final at Incheon. On the eve of her gold medal bout against Kazakhstan’s Zhaina Shekerbekova, the gloves were off, as she was busy playing the doting mother. Her seven-year-old twin sons, Khupneivar and Rechungvar, had demanded a toy turtle and a Spiderman costume.

“I was in touch with them on phone every day, and they told me what they wanted. I didn’t want to forget it and managed to buy everything they wanted before the final, especially the toy turtles,” a beaming Mary told HT at a felicitation function for the Asiad medallists organised by Samsung. She was chosen the Most Valuable Player of the India contingent. She made a triumphant comeback after last year’s birth of her third son, Prince Chungthanglen Kom, who was also glued to the TV as his mother delivered her winning punches.
