I am confident and I can do it better, but I won the competition and it is breathtaking. I also improved my personal best so I cannot ask for more. Moreover, I defended Cuban pride in this har competition.

I train in Santiago with my father, who also was a highjumper.

Second - Artem PRIMAK, RUS
It is my first international competition, that is why maybe I did not get the gold. Now we will work on my mistakes with my coach. actuall i train with three coaches: Sergey Petrenko, Tatjana Tirulina and Otto Zigizmund. I train in the city of Kharkov. Now the season is over, so we will be getting ready for the winter games. (Then he asked to write down the following): The team was really supportive all this time, very helpful!
