The javelin thrower and the Olympic gold medalist said in the recent interview that he had very long hair from the age of 9 or 10. He stated ” I like long hair and I kept it since 9 or 10 years old. But the long hair causes irritation and heat. In a couple of competitions, it causes me heat and was dripping onto my eyes. So for the Olympics, I decided to cut it short. Style can come later, the game comes first”.
