Sara does not come from any kind of specific sports background. She did not do gymnastics or Olympic Weightlifting from a young age, but has instead worked hard to cultivate and develop these skills. She believed in herself and put in the work. This goes for you too. Train hard, trust yourself and build confidence through the hard work that you put in day in, day out.
