Sport Specific Information
Why this sport?
I have been practising recreational sports from an early age, it is my hobby. I learned that in a club in Przemysl, Poland, where there were disciplines such as downhill skiing and biathlon. Wanting to learn how to run and ski, I applied to the club. At the beginning it was fun for me, but I liked skiing so much that I started to take my training seriously.
