Lottery ticket. It's time to cross over to Lottery HQ for the Lotto
draw. Welcome back. Loving that new rinse.
What will it be, �16,000, �25,000 or �40,000 for Charl and Faye?
We'll find out soon. But first, it's only 20 days now
until the Olympic Games begin, which is promising to be our most
successful Games ever. National Lottery players have
helped fund the development of so many of our talented Olympic
athletes. The funding isn't going to end
after London 2012, it will go on to help them prepare for Rio 2016 and
for many Games to come. Tonight, we meet 2016 boxing
My name is Qais Ashfaq, I'm a boxer. I box for Great Britain. I was nine
years old my cousin and my uncle took me to the gym. It felt like I
was meant to be there. I loved it. I've been going training ever since.
You have just got to be determined and focused and train hard really.
If you train hard you will improve on your speed, strength foot work.
If you work hard you will get better and better. Two years ago I
go the on the GB team. I was boxing really well. I was best at the
weight in Great Britain. Now I'm Lottery-funded. I think without
that I don't think I would be able to improve as much as I have been
doing recently. I was a bit off track when I was a bit younger. You
learn a lot of discipline through boxing. I don't know where I would
be without boxing now. I help out with the kids. I teach them how to
box. It keeps the kids off the streets and makes sure they are not
messing around. They haven't been in the sport that long they look up
to me. I'm there to help them out whenever they need. In the amateur
game, it's not a long time. When you are in a ring it feels like a
long time. It's not just throwing punches it's in and out really fast
speeds. You do feel it by the end of it. Once I go through the ropes
and into the ring I'm like another person. I try my best not to get
hit. When you do get hit sometimes you get a buzzing in your ears. The
way I box, I'm a counter puncher. I have to be relaxed and patient.
That is how I have always been. By the 2016 Olympics I will be 23. By
then I will have all the experience of the worlds, Europeans and
winning. And I will go to the Europeans confident and come back
with the gold medal. My name is Qais Ashfaq and with your help one
day I can become an Olympic champion. Qais Ashfaq hashtag fit,
I'm sure you will agree, ladies and gentlemen.
