Name of coachSergey Minin [national], BLR; Sergey Ilyutik, BLR  
When and where did you begin this sport?She took up the sport in 2002, at age three, at the Trud Stadium in Irkutsk, Russian Federation.  
Reason for choosing this sport"My mum [three-time Olympian Oksana Ravilova] tried to protect me from speed skating. She knows how difficult it is, so she took me to all kinds of clubs - gymnastics, dancing, ballet, acrobatics, aerobics. I stayed the longest in gymnastics, but I always enjoyed running on the ice, so at age three I started skating. When I made my choice of this sport, my parents did not stop me."

Other informationRUSSIAN FEDERATION TO BELARUS
In 2019 she moved from the Russian Federation to Belarus, after accepting an offer to represent Belarus in the sport. "After I had already established myself in Russia, the Skating Union of Belarus, through my parents, offered me the chance to join the national team. I made up my mind in one day. There is a lot of competition in speed skating in Russia. Even if you skate fast, you will remain one of many there - it's hard to break into the international arena. In Belarus, it is different. But this does not mean you can relax, you still need to train a lot and skate fast. But at the same time, due to the fact that you do not need to go through a difficult selection process, you can concentrate on developing." (sportpanorama.by, 03 Nov 2021; sb.by, 20 Feb 2020)
