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

I started wrestling at the age of seven and often train with the national team. Other than wrestling I would like to be a boxer, but not professionally. In life, I want to meet Aleksandr Karelin, as he is my hero because he is a three-time Olympic champion.
