Despite his injury in 2019, he was placed sixth in the finals. He altered his run-up for the high jump by shortening it by two steps in 2019. “I have changed my run-up from last year [speaking in 2019]. I had a massive run-up. Two of my last four competitions the stadiums were too small, so I had to shorten my run-up by two steps. That kind of influenced the change. We have tried it and it seems to be going well.
It worked. It is going to save me some feeling in the legs. I know it is only two steps, but it all adds up. You never know how many jumps you are going to do in a competition. This could make me jump higher. You ask how do you take it to the next level, by trying things," he told The Australian.In 2021, he won his fourth national high jump title and qualified for the Olympics with a jump of 2.33m.
