Additional information
General
DEALING WITH HEIGHT
At 175cm he considers himself tall for artistic gymnastics. "I am a little tall for rings and for the individual all around, because I struggle with rotations and weight, the angle [of performance] for the rings becomes more difficult. That is why some apparatus like the pommel horse and the high bar are easier because the range of motion is wider." He says he has had to train more than shorter gymnasts. "I stayed in the sport because of a persistent love for gymnastics. I have struggled a lot and have had to train more than others in order to do certain movements. Tall guys often abandon the sport because of how difficult it is. That's how gymnastics selects its athletes." (folhavitoria.com.br, 30 Jul 2019)
