”I don’t have any lucky charms be­cause I have the most pow­er­ful tool — my con­fi­dence.” — Shah­malarani

19, Na­tional Karate Ath­lete How did your pas­sion be­come a ca­reer? I’ ve been do­ing this sport since I was 12. It turned into a ca­reer when I re­alised what I could achieve in this sport and that I had my coaches be­liev­ing in me. What is your pr e-tour­na­ment rou­tine? It’ s not just lim­ited to a warm-up; it’ s also how well-pre­pared I am be­fore the com­pe­ti­tion sea­son; and how fo­cused and de­ter­mined I am that day. Men­tal prepa­ra­tion is al­ways the most im­por­tant, then comes the phys­i­cal. The most im­por­tant self-dis­cov­ery you’ve had this year? That I am ca­pa­ble of do­ing many things that chal­lenges most of my male ca­reer par t ners too. Any habits you have that set up suc­cess ever y day? The most im­por­tant habit will al­ways be dis­ci­pline. Be per­sis­tent with your pas­sion, never give up, and you will find suc­cess.
