Q2) What are the greatest challenges you face in your sport? mentally and physically?
Biathlon is an incredibly mentally demanding sport because a every miss can cost you 20 sec to a minute. Also your pacing is very important if you get too exited you’ll blow up in the range on the other hand being too relaxed will cost you valuable time on the course. I am mainly focusing on my mental preparation at this point of my career. The physical aspects seems to be coming along just fine.
Q3) Do you have a prepared routine for training before a competition? How do you prepare on the day of the competition?
