Sport Specific Information

When and where did you begin this sport? She took up the sport in 2006 in Kazan, Russian Federation.

Why this sport? "Our physical education lessons at school were held in the same gym where fencers trained. My future coach Elena Prokhorova noticed me with my classmates in the corridor. We were going crazy and running. She scolded us a little, got us into a row and then invited us to a training session. I thought, 'Why not give it a try?'"
