What do you do during your training which is key to your success?

I work on getting height in my training, which the judges like so it gets me more points in competition.

Just falling in my run, and it always makes me nervous looking down the pipe with all the lights and people.

Who would you say is your biggest fan and why?

My biggest fan is my parents, they’ve always supported me and are very proud of what I’ve achieved.
