- Winner 17.01 SB
I am very happy that I have taken the seasons best, it was pretty difficult to do at the end of the season, but I guess it is a good finish. It was pretty hard to produce the energy, but everyone did their best. The stadium is wonderful, there are a lot of seats and almost all of them are occupied, everybody is so cheerful and happy, that is great. I spend all the time at the hotel, but I have noticed that everyone is do friendly here. Now I am preparing for Tokyo, the 2020 Olympics, I am a liitle bit nervous but hoping for the best.

I´m not really satisfied with my result, but my coach and me will do our best to prepare to IAAF World Championships. It was pretty easy to compete tonight and Minsk is an amazing city. Unfortunately, I haven´t seen much, I was just sleeping in my bedroom, but when we were driving to some places the views were amazing. The stadium is awesome. There are so many people here. They all are clapping all the time, no matter from what country the athlete is from. It really gives you support and help to achieve the results. People are very friendly. I really like this concept of the match between Europe and USA. We all a big team.
