Since 2019 my athletic career has been all but smooth. I suffered from a shoulder trauma in 2019 (at the FTD) for which I had to go through an extensive surgery with long rehabilitation. Just when I started to get back (right after Games 2021) I got complications from the COVID vaccine, myopericarditis. While rehabbing my shoulder and now waiting for my heart to recover I have been the definition of relentless. It would have been easy to walk away and give up. But that isn’t who I am. I have had to adapt my training for over 3 years now, but I’m still determined to get back and be the competitive athlete I believe I can be, in one way or another. Because my fire is burning and no matter what life throws at me I know my why.
