Additional information / What would you like people to know about you?

My parents were also involved in canoe sprint and met each other in the sport. Between the ages of six and 13, I was doing trampoline and was named Candidate Master of Sport. But once in the summer my parents took me to a kayaking coach they knew. Two months after that I switched to canoeing and I have been involved in the sport ever since. Baku 2015 is a great chance for me to achieve the maximum result in my career and I hope that I will be able to do that.
