In a sports person’s life, pressure is always there; you have to learn to deal with it. My main focus is to train more women boxers and make them excel. I expect racial discrimination to reduce as our people win medals for the country. Don’t give up as there is always a next time. To be a successful boxer one must also have a strong heart. Some women are physically strong but fail when it comes to having a strong heart. We work harder than men and are determined to fight with all our strength to make our nation proud. What you sow, you will reap What I sow, I will reap. Boxing is not easy. When I started, my male friends would say it is not a woman’s sport. But I say if men can do it then why not women. I miss my kids, and they miss me. It’s very difficult, but I have to do it for my country and fulfill my dreams coming to the 2012 London Olympics. Without boxing, I can’t live. I love boxing. I had no support, no opportunity, no sponsors backing me for most of my career. I took up boxing out of sheer interest and to help my parents financially. I started athletics in 1999, throwing discus and shot put. I didn’t tell my family when I started boxing. People used to say that boxing is for men and not for women and I thought I will show them some day. I promised myself and I proved myself. If I, being a mother of two, can win a medal, so can you all. Take me as an example and don`t give up. I do not only rely on my technique or strength but also on my mind.
