When did you first realize that you jump further than everyone else?
Only in adolescence. I'm a late bloomer. As a child, I was very tall and fast, but I had slight coordination problems. Today, young talents jump around four meters at the age of twelve.

I flew over seven meters for the first time when I was 16.
