Regarding his participation in the Paris Olympics, Barshim said in an interview with the “CGTN” network, “I want to create a legacy, I want my name to be mentioned when the high jump is mentioned.” Barshim revealed his participation in the Paris Olympics, saying, “I think Paris 2024 may be my last Olympics.” Barshim is scheduled to defend his Olympic title in the high jump in Paris after achieving the qualifying criteria by crossing 2.33 meters.
