ROSARIO UP-AND-CLOSE BACKGROUND...

I have always enjoyed athletics. Track was my passion for many years. I remember, when I was in elementary school, entering a 50-yard dash on a football field. There were heaps of us kids running down the field. I enjoyed the thrill of competition. My good friend came in first and I was right behind her! After that, relays and sprints and hurdles were my game. I ran cross-country only to keep in shape. As I got older, I taught swimming and aerobics. Then I joined Ninjutsu. My favorite part was sparring! After Ninjutsu, I found a cute little gym called "Gaucho Gym." A professional kickboxer named Javier Diez owned the gym and taught all the kickboxing classes. I started taking kickboxing classes in the hopes of getting good enough to compete and go as far as I could. Unfortunately, there is not very far to go in kickboxing. I didn't want to turn pro; I wanted to go to the Olympics and win the gold! I competed in kickboxing and really enjoyed it. Then, to my and many others' dismay, Javier closed his gym. (Javier is a great trainer and is currently teaching at "Bodies in Motion" in Southern California.)

After Gaucho Gym closed, I went looking for a boxing trainer. I had sparred at LA Boxing before so I went back there. My dream was still to go to the Olympics. I felt I had a better chance of getting there in boxing. LA Boxing was a serious boxing gym. I really liked it there. The energy and excitement was all around you. Everyone was training: men, women, pros and amateurs. I went through three boxing trainers before I landed on the one I would stay with. All three were good coaches and nice men. They each had something to teach me -- Dub Huntley (trainer of Laila Ali) and Rudy & Victor Hernandez (trainers & brothers of Genaro "Chicanito" Hernandez). They all had something special but I felt they were better trainers for the pros. I needed someone who was used to training amateurs and pros. Ben Lira from South El Monte was that coach for me. I considered him not only a coach but a teacher as well. Not every coach can teach. Ben had been training amateur (Olympic-style boxing) women before I got there. He took his women boxers to the first Everlast US National Championships in 1997. I have to say that Ben always gave 100% and I am thankful for that.

I didn't get to go to a World Championships because, at the time, World Championships did not exist. Nor did I get to go to the Olympics, since they still have not put women's boxing in the Olympics! Hopefully, one day soon they will. I did get to box in two Everlast US Nationals and in two National Blue and Gold Tournaments. I have also boxed against the Canadians three times -- once with my trainer and the other women I trained with, and twice on the US Team. I am fortunate to have done all that. Hopefully, the next generation will get to do so much more and will be able to reach their dream of going to the Olympics! Just the thought gives me goose bumps! I sure hope that I will be there in some capacity -- as a coach, official or announcer!

I stopped boxing in 1999 due to eye surgery. I have been certified as a Level 2 coach and a Level 2 official. I really enjoy refereeing. I still can get a bit of the rush being in the ring! I also announce at shows and boxing tournaments -- Women's Worlds, Nationals, and Men's Nationals. Since I mostly volunteer, which I completely enjoy, I am hoping to announce or commentate pro-boxing someday soon!

Being elected Athlete Representative is wonderful. I thought long and hard if I wanted to take this job on, because I am not here to do this half-way -- It's all or nothing. I represent the women and men athletes in USA Boxing. I want to be on the board to help bring about changes, to make a strong USA Boxing for the athletes, coaches, officials, doctors and staff. We all make up the whole organization.

One of my other passions is doing what I can to bring awareness for missing children and adults. Throughout this website you will see their photos. Please take the time to look at the photos and go to their websites.

One website I frequent often is Robert Cooke's www.rachelcookesearch.org. His daughter, Rachel, is missing. Robert writes in a journal everyday. I would highly recommend you reading his journal. I do.

Thank you for taking the time to read my bio. Please come back to my website often. I would appreciate feedback and any suggestions you may have. Don't forget to join in on the discussion boards!

Best wishes, Krysti
