Long jumper Darya Klishina has proven time and again, that she is an unstoppable force. Being one of the 19 Russian athletes competing as a ‘neutral’ at the World Championships, she won the silver medal with a season-best jump of 7.00m.
With a stunning future ahead of her, let’s catch up with Darya Klishina on what inspires her, what challenges her and what makes her who she is, exclusively on Women Fitness.
At the age of 8, you began playing volleyball, and at thirteen changed your preference for athletics in specialty long jump. What motivated you to choose long jump?
I started with athletics being 11 years old. At 13, I selected long jump. Actually, it was not my decision, rather my first coach as a professional estimated my physical potential. He also knew that I loved long jump. Thus, over those two years I tested many sports which created a great base for my future.
