RETIREMENT
She retired from sport in 2013 before returning in 2015. "I had a baby after I retired. My husband helped me make the decision to return to sport, so I could help young athletes and young women by giving motivational speeches and teaching them about the importance of sport. In my country it is unusual for a married woman with children to compete in sports. Essentially, you are regarded as too old. I chose to fight and change this culture. I teach married women by example, that nothing is impossible for them, even when they have children. I returned to sport after three years of retirement; marriage is not the end of life."
