Before he got the gold medal, he pretty struggled for it. There are times, he has to maintain his weight and couldn’t eat anything he wants. He has to skip school for the training or go to training after school. At the same time, I pressured him not to neglect his studies and he has to maintain a grade for, not below 85 percent.
He was in a tournament before and won only a bronze. There was also one important fight that he loses and made him almost to give up. I always remind him of any such events he needs to be ready – to be a humble winner and not to become a hard loser.
Having this gold made his dream to reality and pays off his hardship. I know he has a long way to go, but he can take it slowly and we’ll just be there to support him.
Congratulation my son. I was a little bit worried when you injured your knee in this fight. You know, you are more precious to me than gold.
