1st Mediterranean Games U23 – Aubagne (France) – 15 June 2014.

In 2014, I participated at the Mediterranean Games U23, where I ran the 3,000m steeplechase. At that time, with a time of 11: 08.28, I set a personal best and club record, all of which are still valid today. Besides that, it was one of my last steeplechase races, as I injured my knee a month later and had no choice but knee surgery.

Unlike the national championships, this was a competition with higher number of runners who were also faster, which helped me to a better result. Nevertheless, I know that I was physically capable of running even faster. Even though my current primary focus is on longer distances, I might try to run steeplechase at one point again in order to improve that time.
