Sport specific information

When and where did you begin this sport?
He first tried the sport at age eight. He moved on to professional training in 2010 in Omsk, Russian Federation.
Why this sport?
"In addition to athletics, since childhood I have also been involved in football, draughts and basketball. Athletics was more of a hobby than a serious matter but I had to choose my own path and the teacher of our orphanage played a decisive role in this. She offered sweets for anybody who ran the autumn cross-country race. I was inspired and won, and got the chocolates. After that, I won the school cross-country race more than once and started to train with my first coach Valery Borisov."
