Sport Specific Information
Why this sport?
"In the 10th grade I got on a musical project and met Jalaldin Abduvaliev, bronze medallist of the Asian Championships in Para triathlon. He came to the project as a motivational guest. I was introduced to him because he is blind and, like me, was blinded by an injury in his youth. Jalaldin suggested that I take a six-month adaptation course of the Kyrgyz Federation of the Blind under the guidance of Gulnaz Zhuzbayeva. I accepted this offer without a doubt and did not go home for the first time during the summer holidays. For six months I learned to walk with a cane, cook, meet guests - in a word, I gained independence. And most importantly, I started doing sports. At first it was just swimming, I went to the pool just to acquire toughness, although this was not easy. It was difficult to navigate in the water, constantly bumping into obstacles, I received serious injuries, but as a result of long and hard training I showed excellent results and qualified for the national Para triathlon team."
