MC Mary Kom Becomes 'Mary Kom OLY'
GUWAHATI: MC Mary Kom expressed her gratitude to the World Olympian Association (WOA) after it allowed her the use of post-nominal letters 'OLY'.
Mary Kom on her official Twitter handle wrote, "Thank you so much for the recognition" tagging WOA and International Olympic Committee (IOC)."
The initiative allows Olympians to use the OLY lettering on any official document after their name much like when one gets a degree.
'OLY' signifies sportspersons' ongoing role in society as an Olympian, living and promoting the Olympic values.
It is to be mentioned that the World Olympian Association (WOA) announced the OLY post-nominal letters initiative at the 8th International Olympic Committee (IOC) International Athletes’ Forum.
