She has had a career as a champion and by that I mean, she has seen the failure a lot of times but she has taken the losses head-on and has always come back stronger and it is sad to see that she has suffered from an injury in the event as she was getting better every year which was clearly seen by her fans and the fans of the sport.
We hope that she recovers soon as there are many championships that are waiting out there for her and although the injury hasn’t been named yet, we hope that it is not anything serious and we hope that she proceeds with a speedy recovery.
