Your love for Biathlon sports started early in life. You won your first Biathlon World Championships bronze medal in 2013 in Nové Město na Moravě, which was the first-ever medal for Italian women at the Biathlon World Championships. This later propelled your career to the height where you have been at the top of the world as an Italian biathlete and winning twice bronze medals in the Olympics and Three Gold, Four Silver, and Three Bronze in Biathlon World Championships over the years. Tell us more about your journey of exceptional hard work, tenacity, and endurance?
When I was a teenager I didn’t take training very seriously because I preferred staying with my friends and make some party but Later when I was like 21-22 years old i saw that I have to train more to stay at the same level like the other girls. So it’s very important to be ambitious in training and to not give up to easily also if sometimes things don’t go very well.
You have been a member of the Italian biathlete Team and had competed in the World Championships. Tells how you were drawn to this sport of Biathlon and your meteoric rise to be a member of the Italian biathlete Team?
Biathlon is a traditional sport in our valley so I started with it at the age of nine. I was a very loud and active child so it was a good balance to me and I liked it a lot to compete against other girls. For me it was just funny and challenging. I was good at shooting and at skiing and at the age of 18 I became part of the Italian national team.
