Six-time world Champion MC Mary Kom is now Mary Kom OLY

Mary Kom

New Delhi: Six-time world champion MC Mary Kom on Thursday expressed gratitude to the World Olympian Association (WOA) after it allowed her the use of post-nominal letters ‘OLY’. Mary Kom shared the image of the certificate of recognition on her official Twitter handle and wrote, “Thank you so much for the recognition” tagging WOA and International Olympic Committee (IOC). ‘OLY’ signifies sportspersons’ ongoing role in society as an Olympian, living and promoting the Olympic values. In November 2017 at the eighth International Olympic Committee (IOC) International Athletes’ Forum, the WOA announced the OLY post-nominal letters initiative. The initiative allows Olympians to use the OLY lettering on any official documentation after their name much like when one gets a degree. IANS
