I was obsessed with sports from my early childhood. Originally, I trained alpine skiing, then cross-country skiing and transitioned into biathlon during high school. A lot of people were perplexed by my choice and asked me how and why biathlon. Like, what regular girl wants to hold and fire a rifle? My mom took a similar path and I followed her footsteps. And I guess, I never wanted to be classified as a regular girl. At the beginning of the high school period, they formed our youth biathlete team, and I made the cut.
Apart from biathlon, I have a number of hobbies and passions. I would describe myself as a closet with numerous drawers. The only issue is sometimes I forget to close one before opening up the next. Know what I mean? My focus wants to flow in different directions, while I need to prioritize biathlon in order to achieve top results, which can be difficult at times. I like to dance, photoshoot and I absolutely love traveling and soaking in new sceneries, cultures and expanding my boundaries. Also, I am interested in psychology, spirituality, relationships, as well as women's health.
This year, I am starting with writing my thesis as I am wrapping up with environmental protection studies. Once I have my degree under the roof, I expect to fully commit to sports achievement and the Olympic Games in Tokyo.
Based on my selection of interests, I cannot foresee entering into a slump period following the end of my sports career, but am really excited to stay hungry for exploration of life and all of its twists and turns.
Results and accomplishments:
- Multiple times national champion
- 3. & 4. place on IBU Junior
