She said,

“The whole idea of introducing them to this kind of competition early in life is for them to realise that life is about competition and it is about winning.

To win, you have to prepare, and to win you have to work as a team.

So, we teach them teamwork very early and also teach them how to be gracious in victory and how to handle defeat and disappointment.”
