Sport specific information

When and where did you begin this sport?
He took up the sport in 2013 in Lviv, Ukraine.
Why this sport?
"This is the merit of my coach, Vasyl Andriyovych Koval, who, as they say, pulled me by the ears into this sport. He trains athletes with musculoskeletal disorders and visual impairments at the training base in Mizhhiria [Ukraine], and it was at his house that I lived and trained. It was during my studies in Mizhhiria, where I was educated as a hotel tourism administrator. Vasyl Andriyovych recommended his colleagues, the coaches of the national [Para] biathlon team of Ukraine, to pay attention to me. And the very next year I was included in the national team."
