Mexico's Maria del Rosario Espinoza, a double-medalist in Olympic taekwondo, said that after winning it all in her sport, she planned to start all over again from scratch as if she were beginning her career.
"I'm going to clear the ledger and start all over, that's how I handle myself and will handle myself. It's like if the World (Championships) next year were the first, just like the next Olympic Games," the 25-year-old athlete said.
Espinoza was one of the Mexican athletes who received the National Sports Prize on Sunday from President Enrique Peña Nieto.
She won a bronze medal in the 67-kilo class in London last summer, continuing a string of victories dating back to the 2007 World Championships and Pan American Games.
Espinoza won medals at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing and the 2010 Central American and Caribbean Games.
She is considered Mexico's best-ever Olympic female athlete and is the only woman to win all the possible titles in her sport.
"I have a lot of things going for me now and the maturity can help me a lot in taking advantage of everything so that things will go well," Espinoza said. EFE
