Sport Specific Information
When and where did you begin this sport?
He began shooting in January 2011 in Belgrade, Serbia.
Why this sport?
"As a child I played football, basketball and handball. I did some sport every day, I even trained boxing. I decided to take up sport because I wanted to do something by myself. I thought it would only be a hobby and I started shooting by chance. The plan was to visit a shooting range two or three times weekly but when I went there for the first time I realised that it's quite interesting and I started to go there every day."
