He lost his motivation to train at the end of 2017. "In winter, I did not come to training at all, I was unmotivated. I did not have any hopes. My coach explained to me that in the life of an athlete there were ups and downs, but you had to keep a cool head so as not to lose sight of your goal by giving up everything. Luckily, I came back and summer was a different story." (37degres-mag.fr, 26 Aug 2019; lanouvellerepublique.fr, 14 Aug 2019)
