Additional information

TOUGH BREAK
Disappointing Commonwealth Games debut at Glasgow 2014 when he missed qualifying for final by one place. Prior to Games, he jumped personal-best 2.25m. In Glasgow he cleared 2.11m, then surprisingly missed 2.16m. Been driven by that disappointment ever since. "It was supposed to be like a fairy tale and I could potentially have been a Glasgow medallist."
