I hope to perform well in Lutsk - Maicel UIBO

Lutsk, 5 July. Press Conference. European Combined Events Team Championships Super League 2019

MaicelUIBO (EST), HeptathlonWorldIndoorBronzeMedalist 2018, fifth in decathlon 2019 world ranking:

“I hope to perform well in Lutsk. Actually I am not targeted at a certain score number. But with a high score earlier this year I am seeking to build on and to improve the result.

Currently I live and get training in the USA, I arrived here straight from Florida. I fell asleep on my way from Lviv to Lutsk but had a chance to watch around the city a little. I like it; in the meantime, everything is ok.

Mywife Shaunae Miller-Uibo is a 400m Olympic champion. We are often asked who is faster. Yet, we never go running together and never argue about the sports”.
