Paralympic sprint champion opens up on big influences
My greatest sporting achievement
My greatest Inspiration
My family is my greatest inspiration.
My greatest challenge
In sport, the greatest challenge for me before the Paralympic Games in Rio was to train for the 400m. It was new for me, I didn’t know how to run it, what I should do, or what my coach wanted from me. I had a limited time frame to be prepared for this distance.
My greatest sporting moment (outside of individual moments!)
I like boxing – I watched the match between Jorge Linares and Vasyl Lomachenko, the Ukrainian who boxer who was knocked down during his fight. But he didn’t give up – he stood back up. Also, he had ruptured the ligament in his left arm, so he won this fight with only one arm. That impressed me a lot and was a great example that you never should give up. You should do your best until the very end.
