Reason for Participating

Having seen the effects of chronic diseases on relatives and myself, I wanted to help fund research for others that are in the same position, especially when it concerns children. At the same time, it also helps me keep healthy.

TOUGHEST PART OF TRAINING

The final round of the sparring session when you are totally exhausted.

MOST ENJOYABLE PART OF TRAINING

The people you meet, everyone is friendly and helping you learn. This contrasts with the initial thoughts I had about boxing.

HAS YOUR VIEW OF BOXING CHANGED?

It's very exhausting, not that I didn't expect that, but it is more exhausting than any other sports.

GREATEST SPORTING ACHIEVEMENT TO DATE

Soccer championship.
