THE CHAMPIONS’ MINDSET ACCORDING TO VALENTIN LAVILLENIE
Everything we do will cause what will happen afterwards: what brings us to this or that situation. In sports, if you don’t prepare well, you can’t expect to do miracles. On the other hand, if you prepare well, you know that you have several cards in your hand to fight. Chance does not exist, it has no place in sports or in life in general.
AN ANECDOTE WITH YOUR SPIKES TO TELL US ?
The worst thing I could have done was to pierce a jar of liquid magnesia and have my bag filled with white… little thought for my bag that I miss.
PRODUCT ASSOCIATED WITH VALENTIN LAVILLENIE
I mainly use the KEY ONE in competitions for transportation and storage. After that, I also sometimes put them on my spikes to avoid surfaces like concrete when I have to move around on the boards during the competition. Also, today’s commercialized nails offer less and less the possibility to remove/change the nails, so the KEY ONE bring a real advantage by protecting the nails. And yeah, when I I put them on quickly to go to the bathroom to walk on the tile floor, it avoids wasting time taking off and putting back on my spikes.
