Ms. Namita Nayyar:
You have won multiple medals in international competitions and reached the pinnacle of success by winning your first-ever Olympic medal in the women’s –57 kg event at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. Walk us through this spectacular journey and tell us how it all began?
Ms. Telma Monteiro:
I started Judo when I was 14, which is not normal in this sport. And I was encouraged by my sister to start. I wanted to travel around the world and be close to my sister and friends, who at the time also practiced judo. But I’ve always been very competitive, so since I started and fell in love with this sport, I decided that I wanted to be really strong. I did not plan how strong, but I knew I wanted to do something special. The Olympics Games of Rio de Janeiro were incredible because it really showed me that it will always be worth it, all the work.
