Kambundji wants to get close to her best step by step so she can tap into her full potential at the World Championships in Athletics in Eugene (USA) July 15-24. That’s why he credits: “I don’t think I’m going to give my personal best performance. But of course I wouldn’t say no.”

She wants to focus on “getting off to a good start” and keeping pace with her opponents. “Then I’m less nervous towards the end of the race.”
