Reason for taking up the sport
"In elementary school I saw a boy doing forward somersaults. He fell on his butt, and as a 13-year-old I thought, 'damn it, I would like to try that'. First, I tried outside on the sand and after a week I found that I could do it on the same stairs. Just like him, I fell on my butt without any surprise. The news came to this boy [that I had started], we made friends and started training together." (nidzica.wm.pl, 03 Nov 2019)

"My goal is to light up the potential for movement in other people." (redbull.com, 05 Oct 2019)
