Lovlina, who ensured India’s second medal by reaching the women’s 69kg semifinals on Friday, said she developed the fearless attitude with the passage of time. 

“When I began, I was not fearless. But when I gained confidence in my abilities I did not care about what people were saying and started performing better,” Lovlina had said at a virtual press conference.
