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

I started archery in January 2011. Since that day I keep training. At the beginning I was not more special than other beginners, but perseverance and hard work pushed me further. The first tournament I was a surprising third place. A few months after I was 5th at the National Championship, which made me even more motivated to do better. The first indoor tournament, I was in first place and scored the norm for the National indoor championships, where I was second in the qualifications, and I dominated my matches and finished first. After that I became confident and I have so far won the Senior Indoor National Championships, and was 4th the Outdoor Senior National Championship. First major tournament was the European Championships (Denmark) where I shot a previous personal record, later setting a national record that still stands. In 2013, I was in France at the Junior Cup where I dislocated my ankle on the first day there on the hotel stairs, but still competed.
