Tajamul Islam, a class two student from Jammu and Kashmir is the World Kickboxing champion for under-8 players and she won six games during the five-day long championship held in Italy.

Around 90 countries participated in the event.

At such a tender age, Islam, with those glittering eyes, appeals to all Indian parents to support their children and encourage and motivate them towards sports.

She may be young but dreams, keep her inspired – even as she puts in 25 hours of practice a week.

“I am happy that I won and I am proud of it. I want to appeal to all the Indian parents to support their children and encourage them and motivate them towards sports,” she tells ANI with such innocence and magnanimity. “I am feeling very very happy. You cannot even imagine the level of my happiness.

"I am very proud of myself. I want to thank all the people who supported me. I am feeling proud that I won a gold for India. I want to thank my parents, my teachers and the Indian Army,” she adds. She may be young but dreams, keep her inspired – even as she puts in 25 hours of practice a week.

A resident of Tarkpora village in Bandipora district, 65 km from Srinagar, Islam is a student of the Army Goodwill School.
