Christian Otero was crowned on Sunday. The new world champion told the secret of his succes.
Can you remember your first steps in FootGolf?
I started to play it in 2012 in the United States. I met a very new sport, and I thought, it could grew up. I believed it would develop in the next years.
How can be someone a world champion?
First of all, you have to believe in yourself. You need to be in great condition of course, but the key is to clear your mind during the game.
Was it a pressure on you last week because you and your team was in home, and you were the biggest favourite of the tournament?
Of course, yes! When you know, that you have to win, it is a pressure. But I was confident enough. I dreamed about that day and it came true.
Will you be a two-time champion?
I do not know it now. I am 37 years old. I’d love to, but more and more great players come to the courses, so I need to work hard to defend the title.
