Best memories in speed skating:
my best memories are about the welcoming atmosphere at the tracks and the new cultures I discovered during competitions abroad. I was particularly impressed when I went to Colombia, with the crazy atmosphere which really gave us the drive to excel, a real motivation that I will never see elsewhere.
Worst memories in speed skating:
My worst memory was when I was hurt. My season stopped suddenly, and I couldn’t do the sport I love; it was difficult to accept.
I also like cycling and swimming.
