Club / TeamDynamo St. Petersburg [RUS] / Central Sports Army Club [RUS]:  
Reason for choosing this sport"A short track club was near my home. Before that, I was engaged in figure skating from age three. But due to difficulties with the coach, the results began to drop dramatically. After I gave up figure skating, my mother began to immediately look for other clubs. So she found a skating rink near our home, where short track classes were held."
