When Ritu Phogat thought of quitting wrestling due to extensive training during her childhood

Papa started my training at a very young age and it was not an age when you consider your career options. Since childhood, it was just wrestling. I grew up seeing my sisters (Geeta and Babita) train. So taking up any other sport or occupation never really crossed my mind. When I was 8-year-old, I had thought of quitting wrestling. I was very young to put through such a regime (by my father) and I often used to tell mummy that I can’t take it anymore. She used to console me by saying it’s just a matter of three years and I should continue with the training. It happened over a course of many years that she kept consoling me by saying it was a matter of three years and now I am really happy that her ‘three years’ brought the best out of me.
