Mumbai: Boxer Sarita Devi on Tuesday said she exceeded her own expectations by winning a silver medal in the just-concluded Commonwealth Games in Glasgow as she had made a comeback to the sport after a gap of two years.
"I did better than my expectation because before the Commonwealth Games I thought I wouldn't be able to play as my body wasn't used to it (rigour) after a two-year break. I somehow started training after the trial. I went to Glasgow and I got the confidence," she said.
The Manipuri boxer was speaking at a media interaction organised by Olympic Gold Quest (OGQ), the sports foundation which supports her.
