Reason for choosing this sportHe likes the adrenaline of the sport. "I came to the first lessons on my own because I just wanted to skate for free. But everything turned out well. I made a lot of friends, that's why I stayed in this sport. It can be said that 'hunger' brought me to professional sports. I can't lose. Every time I lost, I basically trained twice as hard. It wasn't enough for me to have a satisfying result."
