What has been your credo in life that helps you overcome each challenge?
To set objectives and to work hard to reach them - without allowing them to become an obsession - has helped me to keep my enthusiasm in life. I never lose faith, even with the obstacles that come across.
What would be your tip to each person who wants to achieve something in sports?
To love what you are doing… a man cannot reach his limits without passion.
What advantages or benefits has the COMPEX Wireless brought to your performance?
Compex improves the vascularity during the time you increase your muscle mass. It provides a better efficacy of the pre-race warm-up and a better recovery of lactic acid drainage. It is a great solution to fix small muscle contractions that occur during the season. COMPEX Wireless is handier especially right before the race. It allows you to save time, at a moment when time is really precious.
What are your preferred programmes and when do you use them?
My favorite programmes are:
- Before the race: Capillarization, Toning Massage, Potentiation
- After the race: Actice recovery, Reviving Massage, Regenaration
- In case of necessity: Undulated Massage, Contracture, TENS.
What is your ultimate goal in your career?
To win the gold medal to the Para-Olympics in London in the time trial and to help a friend to win a medal in the team competition.
