TWO SPORTS
Having competed in wheelchair fencing and shooting Para sport, he considers the sports to have no similarities. "They are absolutely opposite sports. If fencing is dynamic, and all about your choices in the moment, shooting is completely different. Here you need to freeze, lie low and make a shot." (ncvsm.ru, 11 Dec 2017)
