2016 Rio Olympics might be the last one for Mary Kom

Mary Kom has been world champion boxer for five times. She is still preparing for 2016 Rio Olympics. She is 31 years old and hails from Manipur. 
Mary was in Mumbai on Thursday to receive a cheque for Rs. 5,00,000/- from a private company to help her set up her academy.
She was asked if Rio would be her last tournament. Without saying it in many words, she did give away that it probably might be so. She said, "After Rio it might be difficult.....Maybe".
She is still training to qualify for Olympics and also trying to recover from her injuries as she had worked exceptionally hard for Asian games since last year resulting in injuring her back and hamstring.
