My motto:

Never give up, no matter how hard it is you should always find something that will inspire you to keep going further. I find my inspiration in the success of other athletes. They inspire me to work more and harder. I would say to any young athletes, never give up, no matter how hard it is.

Overall results:

  • World Championships 5 medals (2-2-1)
  • European Championships 9 (5-1-3)

It's not over, till it's over.

There is always space for improvement. Whenever something goes wrong, I know I must not give up, I must give my best and try till the very last moment, both in sport and in life. My advice to the young athletes is to be dedicated to their work and always find a way to work around a problem or solve it. If you firmly believe you should succeed - you will!
