New Delhi: Veteran Indian boxer MC Mary Kom's bid to compete at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games ended in a heartbreak on Friday as she was forced to withdraw midway from the selection trials, in New Delhi, due to a knee injury.

The six-time world champion twisted her left knee in the first few minutes in the opening round of the 48kg semi-finals against Haryana's Nitu.

Mary Kom will thus miss the quadrennial event, where she had become the first Indian woman boxer to claim a gold medal in the last edition in 2018.

"Six-time world champion Mary Kom has withdrawn from the ongoing Women's Boxing Trials for the 2022 Commonwealth Games due to an injury she suffered on Friday," the Boxing Federation of India (BFI) said in a statement.
