To be listed alongside amazing athletes and great champions that have all dedicated themselves to martial arts is so special for me. I want to congratulate all other nominees on the list, you are all very deserving and it is my honour to be included.
As a young boy I looked at this types of lists and always wanted to be featured in one. For it to happen is incredible.
Thank you sportmartialarts for continuing to advance martial arts to the next level and for the inclusion.”
