Sport Specific Information
Reason for choosing this sportHer mother took her to an ice rink that had opened near their house. "For a very long time I had to choose between music school and short track. But the sport won. I liked short track because you can overtake other guys in it and there are unusual skates. When I got into professional skating, I realised that I liked it and was interested in it, and then there was the excitement for the first competitions too."
