Tajamul Islam, has brought laurels to Kashmir once again after she won a gold medal in the Under-14 category at the Kickboxing Championship in Cairo, Egypt.

Back in 2016 too, Tajamul had won gold in the same competition, but as an eight-year-old in the Under-9 category.

According to a report in the Times of India, Tajamul played two matches against the local players, and the other two against the players from France and Argentina.

Back in 2016, the youngster had won gold in the same competition, but in the U-9 category, when 90 countries had participated.

“I can’t express how proud I feel. It was seriously like ‘kya ye mai hi hun?’ (is it really me?). By doing hard work you can do anything,” Islam said in an exclusive interview with News18.

“In Cairo, when my final bout was with Argentina. I had two bouts with Egypt because the participation from there was a lot. They would hoot everytime like ‘Egypt, Egypt’ and it felt so good to beat them when everyone would go quiet.

“I was nervous, there was pressure also, chance at a second world championship and it was like I have to become a two-time world champion. I have to keep going forward, not just two but three, four, five times I have to win. I don’t have to stop now and take my game forward professionally,” she concluded.
