    In an interview to the official web site of the Kazakhstan Boxing Federation Dariga Shakimova has told about performance at the international tournament in Shchuchinsk and that she was not in a good shape yet.

    - Dariga, we congratulate you on the won gold medal at the tournament in Shchuchinsk! Did you have a goal to win the gold in this category?

    - Yes, I set such task and prepared for winning. Before competitions any athlete sets the task to win. For this purpose they prepare and work hard to win.

    - Your competitor Niyen-Chin Chong from Taipei didn't come into the ring in the final. You were surprised?

    - Yes, it was unexpected. The reason of her absence is unknown to me. On arrival at the tournament I was told that she has also arrived to Shchuchinsk. It was very interesting to me to fight with her as she is a prize-winner of the World Cup. But it didn't happen. I think that we will meet soon.

    - How do you think you are at the top of play?  

    - I wouldn't tell that I am in good shape now. Of course, I try to support it as I train and prepare hard. I consider it is early to speak about optimum shape because we will have important competitions and it will be necessary to be well prepared for them.
