They cleared out no stone unturned. When a competitor trains like that, they have that level of certainty. They know that they might not have done anything more.
And when you have that satisfaction, then you just are relaxed and you perform to your very best because you know that there is nothing more you could do and then you leave it to the universe and other things that could affect your performance on that day,” Manisha said.
