He competed with a broken toe at the 2017 World Championships in Budapest, Hungary. (Facebook page, 15 Jul 2017; zeit.de, 15 Jul 2017)

He was forced to quit the preliminary round of the 3m springboard event at the 2012 Olympic Games in London after his second dive went wrong. His hand slipped from his thigh, causing him to lose his tuck and land on his back. After he completed his third dive he was given medical advice to withdraw due to dizziness and nausea.
