Some Words From The Worlds

“The meet definitely has been an amazing experience thus far. I was more disappointed with my jumping than perhaps I’ve ever been, considering how good I felt the day of my competition and the fact that I’d jumped 17.39m in Colombia at the end of July; so I was looking to make the final. Couple that with the fact that my first jump was close to 17 meters but ended up being a foul and you can figure how sour I was.

“At the end of the day though I’m fully aware that being at a meet like this, in a city like Berlin (and not to mention with my family and people close to me in town to support), is a great way to end a pretty good season! Besides, there’s always World Indoors in March and plenty more meets beyond that… along with plenty of improvements to make in my jumping.”

Expect to read more about Samyr in future championships.
