Ritual: "I listen to my music for some fun time before I warm up. I listen to rap music, dance-hall, a little bit of soca music and pop music as well. On competition day I am a different person. I go into this zone, where I don’t talk much and stay quiet. I am focused.â€? (telegraph.co.uk, 16 March 2017)
