Yes my biggest dream was to be the best archer in the world and since my childhood to take part in the Olympic Games and I did it. To win a medal at the Olympics has been the greatest thing in my life until now.
Ok some tips from me.
- Be patient, sometimes you need more time to develop your technique.
- Listen to your coach.
- Watch all the YouTube videos from “World Archery” because you can see all the good archers competing and you can learn a lot from them.
- If you want to be a good archer, you have to train six times a week. It’s not necessary to make a lot of arrows but it’s really important to do it continuously.
- You should often shoot for score during practice.
How do you start your day? Every sportsperson has a disciplined routine to succeed what do you say on that?
I start my day with meditation and yoga, sun salutation. This is important for me because the meditation helps me on the mental site and yoga is good for my body and my flexibility. After this I eat breakfast. Sometimes I eat yogurt with fruits or chia pudding with fruits or just a smoothie. It depends on what I like that day.
