"It's been great. She's helped me in a lot of ways in terms of managing all the hype," he said.

"How to manage everything that goes around being a pro athlete, she's kinda lived it."

Dunne has spoken about how she finds it more nervous watching Skenes than competing herself.

"I get more nervous watching Paul because it's just different when you're not doing it and you're not in control," she said in a video by Bleacher Report.

"But I am confident in his abilities and I kinda channel those nerves into excitement for him."
