Not every professional athlete can replicate her phenomenal training. Kira Makogonenko from Kharkiv is a European champion at the age of 14! 57 fights, all of them victorious.
The world's top promoters follow her with admiration. The girl is trained by her father, world kickboxing champion Artem Makogonenko. But Kira didn't enter the ring right away; at first, her father sent her to gymnastics.
"At first he didn't want to take me to boxing at all because he didn't like women's boxing. But in the end I persuaded him," Kira Makohonenko, European boxing champion.
"I didn't want her to train and do boxing. The fact that she would be an athlete... was definitely a part of it," Artem Makohonenko, Kira's father and coach.
However, once in the ring, the girl could not leave it. And last year she became the European champion, defeating a Russian in the final.
"I showed what Ukraine is, that Ukraine is the best country in the world. And that I love my country very much and am ready to represent it," Kira Makogonenko, European boxing champion.
