I always believed what my coach was telling to me, so I knew what I have to do in order to succeed. After first two hurdles I was in good position, so I just keeped pushing for the medal. I wanted to win and I got it. Huge personal best will help me for the college as well. My idol is Bershawn Jackson(two times World Champion) so I always try to be like him. I am a World Champion and I really feel good.
