Sara Khoshjamal‐Fekri, 23, is a passionate Taekwondo fighter. She devotes all of her time and energy to this sport. Ten years ago she began to train with Maryam Azarmehr who has been coach since then. For six years, she has been a member of the national team. In her spare time she trains younger Taekwondo students.
Sara was born in Roudbar, a small city in the North of Iran, close to the Caspian Sea. “People from Roudbar are very stubborn”, says Sara and adds: “At least that is what people say. ” She is the youngest child of four children. She has got two brothers and a sister. All three took up Taekwondo before her, but none of them had Sara’s talent, nor her persistence. They quit, but Sara wants to make it to the top. Only her sister still teaches Taekwondo to 4 to 10‐year‐old girls.
Sara is one of Iran’s best Taekwondo fighters. After Beijing 2008, the now 23‐year‐old has just one dream: To participate in the Olympic Games 2012 in London and bring home a gold medal.
