Next was height of 1.96 meters. I was asked to move a bit higher – at the height of the standard for the world indoor Championships, I wanted to reiterate it. Was the psychological moment with the setting itself: when one rises the height that means something to you, in my head there are many thoughts. I wanted to overcome them. And while the coach next to me while have the opportunity to have someone to ask and get the advice you need to enjoy these moments.
