Which role does technique play in your workouts?
I rarely use technique, because I paid a lot of attention to tech in my childhood, now I don’t need it as an adult.
You seem to have the technique down; do you have a weakness?
I have no weaknesses in kayaking.
Is there a mental component to your sport and if so, how do you train your mind?
I don’t know that our sport requires special attention to the mental part. I never ask for the help of a psychologist. I believe in a lot of workouts that is the most important.
What is your most beloved achievement so far?
My favourite result is the Olympic gold medal since I worked since I was young.
In 2016 you didn’t make it into the Olympic final and in 2021 you won. What changes did you implement in those five years?
I was too young for the 2016 Olympics; I trained a lot in five years and as a result I developed.
