He’s going to bring that, and if I can stay calm under that fire I feel like I’m going to have a very, very good night.“Being on the biggest stage is a financial incentive as well, if I win I get to help my mum, my family, myself. These things are inspiring me, but ultimately I want to do the best I can.”Updates to story
