Wladimir Klitschko: In big sports it is impossible to achieve success without partners and members of your team

Former world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko said that sometimes even a rival helps him achieve his goals: "There is an English proverb, which I always adhere to: "If you are the smartest person in the room, then you are in the wrong room." This means that I always try to hire smart people to work with. I am glad when I am surrounded by those who help me to develop.

‘It probably sounds funny when a boxer who always goes into the ring alone sees himself as a team player. But in big sports it is impossible to achieve success without partners and members of your team. Sometimes even a rival leads you to your goal. Not because he is easy to beat, but because he somehow influences your movement towards it.”
