Sport specific information

When and where did you begin this sport?
She took up the sport in 2016 at age 16.
Why this sport?
"As a little girl, I tried karate. Less than a year, but it was my first sport. As for shooting, I used to come with my dad to a shooting range as a child and watched. When I was older, after getting impaired, I would sometimes come to shoot for fun. And it was the employees of the club who signalled to me and my parents that I had talent. They asked if I would like to try to train competitively. And if someone says it's okay, I figured I had nothing to lose."
