Catching up with Flo-Jo

In her heyday: Josephine (right) crossing the finish line ahead of G. Shanti in the 200m race in an inter-bank meet in 1989.

FORMER national 400m runner Josephine Mary Singarayar is determined to fulfil goals in life and defy the odds with her mindset and strength.

In 1984, she made up her mind to qualify for the 1988 Olympics. And in the four preceding years she worked on cutting down her time and eventually making it to the Games in Seoul, South Korea. And 33 years on, she can still vividly recall the trials and tribulations she went through to achieve her Olympics dream, one she will cherish for a lifetime.
