When you started competing in international competitions, did you see yourself being in the top-10?
I started competing when I was 14 years old in youth international competitions. At the age of 19 I earned 2 medals in the IFSC World Championship and also won the IFSC Youth World Championship.
When I was young, I did see myself in the top 10. I worked really hard to stay in the first place and improve world records. I like sports since I was a child, I know what it takes to get great victories.
What motivated you to compete rather than just to climb outside?
I like climbing outside but competitions are also important for me. I was born for this! In every competition, preparations, and trainings I have a new feeling, life is wonderful, I love it.
What are some struggles you face as an athlete?
My struggles, if I understood well, I do not believe in limits. I know that God help us all the time. It doesn’t matter how you look like, you can be whoever you want, and it just takes time and effort. That is life. Not pain not gain. Pain is temporary, victory is forever. I make my path in my career, I don’t focus in other athletes, I focus on me.
What influenced you to start competing?
I focus only on me and the freedom of my mind, head, and light warming up. I believe in my super runs and do not think about bad things and I have not fear.
Who most helped you get to where you are right now?
A lot of help, I have best thing in my life: my family, my dog, my brother, the best coach light athletic, good atmosphere for trainings. It all fits for my motivation and trainings. My coach is the best and is not only my coach but also my friend.
What advice could you give to Young Athletes?
For young athletes ok!! Believe in your dreams and know that you can be the best one or not, it only depends on you.
