Sport specific information
When and where did you begin this sport?
She began practising the sport seriously at age nine.
Why this sport?
"In the beginning, the sport was an obligation for me and it scared me. I felt that the space was very big and the displacement on the athletics track was complicated, because I only see some rays of light when there is sun. Over time, it became my great passion."
