When you started competing in international competitions, did you see yourself being in the top-10?
My first international competition was in Paris in 2012, and at that time I even couldn't imagine I'll get in top-10! Seems like my dream came true!!
What motivated you to compete rather than just to climb outside?
When I saw how fast girls are running the distance at the standard, I got inspired and have got a goal- to prove myself that I can become stronger and faster, to become better then them. I believe that sport not only makes the body stronger, it also reinforce your spirit!
What are some struggles you face as an athlete?
The biggest struggle that I face is difference between climbing holds I'm training on and climbing holds of international standard I have to compete on, it always takes some time for me to adapt.
What influenced you to start competing?
I'm doing rock climbing since I was a kid. In the beginning it was just a hobby, but as it happens with gaining new achievements I got inspired to become world's best climber.
Who most helped you get to where you are right now?
My mother is one of the top Ukrainian trainers. She trains me, believes and always supports me. Also my experienced sport-friends from Ukraine and Poland who can always give a good advice!
What advice could you give to Young Athletes?
Believe in urself, train hard and keep going!
What are some of your favourite hobbies?
I think at this stage of my life climbing is my hobby, but I also love to read books, do shopping and travel around the world
