Tell us about your personal philosophy, phrase, ethic, and/or value as a skater! Yes, you can write a book…: I have a personal anthem : "We only have one life to become the best". I like to help other persons and advise them on the best stuff of the moment. I'm ambitious and want to improve myself, my skating in order to be better and to become the best. I always want that things are perfect and that help me to give the best of myself. I'm always focused on my targets and find the key to achieve them. 

Sport must be fair and I always check my opponents on the Start box. I never give up.
