Sport specific information
When and where did you begin this sport?
He took up shooting competitively in 2016.
Why this sport?
He initially practised canoeing but also liked shooting in his spare time. "I liked shooting as well as kayak. I was skilled in the shooting range, then coach Csaba Jako of the Cel-Tudat club saw me. We chose the rifle instead of the pistol because I can hold it with my shoulder. Canoeing has been good for that reason because my arm gets strong from a lot of training."
