1. Do you have a role model in sports? If yes, who do you look up to?
Sergey Ustiugov is my favorite athlete and I try to imitate his technique. In Ski Jumping my role model is Andreas Stjernen from Norway.
2. What moment of your sports career do you consider the best so far?
I think my best season so far was the winter 2020/21. I had many successful starts and took part in more important events e.g. the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships in Oberstdorf.
3. To relax after training, what is your favorite movie to watch?
It's hard to choose only one movie. But, perhaps, I like the film "Legend No. 17" the most. It is a very motivating movie about the hard way of Russias hockey star Valery Kharlamov.
