“Well, in that particular moment, I am just giving out all I have in the last meters of the race. I knew my biggest rivals were starting behind me, I really wanted to have no regrets and do not lost by just a couple of seconds.
Once the finish line crossed, I had to wait some more time to know what I will celebrate but I am already happy whatever the result, because I won that 'inner battle' of performing the D-day while handling your doubts and certainties. Winning is never easy and always comes with a battle.”
