While Hannah said that she missed competitions and going abroad for tournaments, Cassius said that he instead took the free time by doing strength training with a fitness coach at home and working on his technique.

“I did a lot of training myself, including physical training”- Cassius Haye. On being asked what did they do post lockdown, the youngsters said that they hung out with their friends and went out after a long time.
