I believe shooting is more about your mental strength than your age. I feel like my dreams are coming true every time I go through trial and error and discover success in new ways.

Strong points

“That moment when twenty people are all lined up in a row, aiming their rifles at the targets—I enjoy that tension in the air. And how as soon as they call out ‘Start!’ the air in the room will begin to change.”
