You started out competing in gymnastics but soon realised your love for pole vault, what lead you to realise this?
It’s the sense of freedom that pole vaulting has. I feel like I’m flying during my vault, trying to reach the sky!
What is the best part about being a professional athlete?
Professionalism is part of my mentality in anything I do. This includes determination and hard work to reach my targets. Being a professional athlete is the result of my way of behaviour doing sports. I enjoy this every moment. Digging deeper into it, one of the bright sides is the travelling and to see a lot of places!
