How has your training been going recently?
Difficult to say, I was just informed that was on the team yesterday so all this time I hadn’t be sure if I will go there, so instead of training hard and focusing only on the Worlds, I had to prove myself to my federation.
What is the focus of your training schedule?
My focus is definitely to become accustom to the heavier shot. My main goal for this season was to win the European Junior Championships, and all my training was prepared to EJCH so now I have to train and compete with the 7.26 shot and be patient.
