SUZHOU, China, April 27 (Xinhua) -- Kenya's Sejal Thakkar, who put her table tennis career on hold to start a family fifteen years ago and now has two children, has returned to play at the world's top level after such a long halt.
"I have to," Thakkar said about whether she is sacrificing her own sporting career for her family.
"I sacrifice a lot Cheap Nike Air Max 2018 , not just a little. I stopped playing and it took me a good 15 years to get back and within those 15 years it was just a total stop."
Thakkar started playing table tennis when she was 11 years old and eventually made it onto Kenya's national team. She went on to represent her country at several world championships and Commonwealth Games before getting married and taking a 15-year break.
She now has a 14-year-old son and 12-year-old daughter, both of whom play tennis and have potential to compete at an international level. Thakkar takes them to practices on the weekdays, which leaves a total of four hours on the weekends for her to practice table tennis.
"It's really difficult to balance sport and being a mother, but maybe over the weekends it is my time so I tell them, 'You do your stuff and at least over the weekend I get to knock off a little bit,'" Thakkar said.
She returned to professional table tennis two years ago www.cheapestairmaxshoes.org , but this journey was not an easy one.
In addition to putting more physical strain on her body, Thakkar, who turns 40 on May 5, had to get back to the routine of travelling to international tourname.
