Some questions about ICEstripe: 

Why do you wear an ICEstripe?

I wear the ICEstripe for security reasons. I think that some vital information about us should always remain visible. ICEstripe makes it possible, plus it looks great.

Preferred type of ICEstripe?

Elite, especially the black coloured one, appeals most to me.

What success in your career do you consider most important?

No doubt a great success was winning the Junior World Championship in Jamaica. Those games have launched my career. They have become a driving force and motivation to continue and work even harder on myself and sport results.
