"There can be death if you land on the neck, there's death if you go down headlong. It is risky, I know. But to win something, I always knew I had to take a risk. I'd seen boys do it, so why not? It's tough because when you land after two aerial somersaults, the weight that comes on the leg is double - if I'm 45kg, the legs have to take 80-90kg." (, 13 Aug 2016;, 18 Apr 2016)
