"I felt really good in the first event of the year. Even with this pandemic issue, where I couldn't train in the best conditions and where I changed training locations several times, it was a great result. I am very happy", confessed the Portuguese athlete in statements with BTV.
"It was a little awkward. Jumping alone is like doing a practice, the emotion is not the same. I'm here alone, I have few people in the stands and the motivation is not the same without hearing the applause. Today, I wasn't at my best, but it was still a good event", explained Pichardo.
