Athlete Info


I was born and bred in a small town, where to become a good sportsman is not connected only with hard work, perseverance and full dedication but it also requires a great deal of sacrifice in terms of personal finance and poor conditions for training. I haven’t received any means to keep my physical strength and recover after training sessions and competitions. Moreover, the lack of facilities has turned my preparation into a great challenge. Against all odds I became a National Champion.

What makes you different

Since an early age I have been irresistibly attracted by different sports; I trained basketball, volleyball, tennis, mountain climbing in a rapid succession but wasn’t satisfied with the way they stretched me. My body continued to want something different that would work every muscle in it. In the long quest for the sport my body and soul had been longing, I finally reached the sport which answers to all my expectations and it is javelin throwing.

Why do you want to compete in college?

I have been training almost always alone till now. Students in my town have no motivation to take part in sports events that need serious preparation because the conditions under which we train are so poor that they feel motivated neither by local authorities nor by national ones. When I become part of a well-organized and highly respected college team, I will be able to double my efforts to be the best among others.

Track and Field and life Goals?

I want to develop my body, to reach the limits of human potential and even go beyond breaking world records and keeping the first place for years. This is the main road I want to go and I feel my will is unyielding.

Anything else we should know?

I adore art. I take part in different school projects, art installations, 3D art and so on. I am fascinated by music, as well. I play the bass guitar and try to develop my singing abilities.

College goals

I have been studying DRAWING and Industrial Design for 4 years now and I want to continue developing in these two fields, which combine art and science in a most creative way. I want to be part of such an academic community in USA because the scale of advancement is much greater than that in my country.
