Hi I'm Natalie and welcome to Talking Sport.

Rohullah Nikpai is from Afghanistan and is a taekwondo fighter.
Rohullah won his country's first ever Olympic medal in the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.

Rohullah Nikpai is a new kind of warrior in a country which has seen some 30 years of
war. He's fighting to win taekwondo gold in London 2012. Nikpai's bronze medal in
Beijing 2008 was a golden moment for him, for a country which had never won an
Olympic medal before. The soft-spoken star finds it hard to keep a low profile. He's
recognised everywhere he goes.

If my boss is angry or in a bad mood, I try to keep a low profile.
I'm quite shy and I don't like a lot of attention, so I usually keep a low profile.
It's hard for the Royal Family to keep a low profile because everybody knows who they
are.
