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

As someone who has dedicated my entire life to sport, I can surely say that artistic gymnastics is a source of joy, inspiration and pride for me. It is a way to challenge myself and set goals. Throughout my life – from the first time I started gymnastics at age of five, to today, as I prepare for my 1st European Games in Baku – gymnastics has truly made me who I am today. As I grew older and my skills developed, I realized that gymnastics could be more than just a hobby for me. I started to dream of competing and trained to get better, and in this way, gymnastics gave me my first experience with working towards achieving my goals. I learned to challenge myself, and I have gymnastics to thank for that. Since then, I have became a champion of Ukrainian and international competitions and World Cups many times. In the Olympic Games in London, our team received 4th place. I also became a champion of 2014 European Championships on parallel bars and won bronze on vault and in team competition. Recently I obtained gold in World Championships in Nanning. I am very grateful for this achievement to my coach and athletes of my team with whom I was competing. They were my inspiration. Now my main goal is to become Olympic champion in Rio.
