“When I started going out for training, it did not come easy, at times I even thought of quitting, but I understood that with each training session I was becoming stronger and more self-confident. Then I had first competitions where I defeated my rival of the same weight and age, and the next fight was supposed to be with a girl who had been training longer than me, but what’s most important, who was heavier and higher than me. I pulled myself together, recollected everything the coach had taught me and won! … And further on, more competitions and more victories!”, wrote Kira in the explanation to her work.
“I grew up, became more self-confident, strong with spirit and body”, spoke the girl about her main victory. She noted that her parents had supported her in sport beginnings.
