As for desserts, my coach and I always say, "No sweets without breaking a sweat". Repeating these words in my mind helps me to get through even the toughest of training menus. (Abe)

Strong points

"In cross-country skiing, my forte is the classic style. I hope everyone will notice how gracefully I ski in races. As for biathlon, since I am starting to feel more comfortable with my shooting skills, my next challenge is to shoot faster."
