Additional information

FLYING HIGH
"It was my sophomore year when I learned more about triple jump. There's the hop phase, the step phase, and the jump phase. Once you have a long - or a good enough - first phase, a second phase that’s manageable, and then a long third phase, then it feels like that consistent floating motion. Once you first do it properly, you panic. I do remember that. Then you get used to it. It feels like you're flying." (people.chicagoreader.com, 7 Dec 2016)


ASTHMA
Battled severe asthma since the age of two. This led him to withdraw from various competitions and sports. Through his childhood and teenage years, doctors advised that he should not participate in sports, only light physical activity, as it would lead to further asthma-related complications.
