"I have not taken a final decision but maybe I will not continue after Rio Olympics. I may retire," Marykom told media on the sidelines of a function organised today to mark the second anniversary of Dalmia Cements in the North East, of which she is the brand ambassador.
"Training is very important and I am focusing on it so that I can win more medals for the country," she said. Asked about her preparation for the 2016 Olympics, she said since there's no major competition this year, she will play some international invitational matches as it is necessary to play in a few matches before major tournaments.

"Playing within the ring for a competition not only tests our physical fitness but also enhances our performance and confidence level though too many competitions is also not good as it increases risk of injury," she said.

Mary Kom rued that so far she has been the only Olympic medallist from the North East though there are many sportsperson capable of bringing Olympic medals for the country.
"It is very painful for me to see that there are many talented people in the region but they are not able to bring medals for the country. I will try my best to ensure that more sportsperson win medals from the country," she said.
