I started training judo at the age of 6. My parents thought it would be great for me to wrestle because I had alot of energy. My goal is to qualify for WC 2014 and do better than before. My other hobbies are spending time with my family and basketball. My favourite sports memory is when Michael Jordan secured the victory for NBA against Utah in the Champions Legaue 1998.
