“It is because of poverty. When you think about where you are coming from and how that single win you are chasing can change everything you will train hard even if it means losing your limbs. Training is hard work, no child from a rich family can become an athlete. But because most athletes are not educated they soon lose all the money they get. It is a cycle.”
