Kasia, silver medallist at the Archery Championships in Switzerland

Kasia, Engineer Consultant in Zurich, won a silver medal at the last National Archery Championship in Switzerland after only three years of practice. She tells us about her meteoric rise in this discipline.

“I started archery only three years ago, thanks to my companion. He introduced me to his coach who saw potential in my long arms. So, I started training and competitions. Preparing for championships requires discipline, perseverance and knowing how to manage your time. I train 4 to 5 times a week. I start working earlier in the morning, so I do not get to training too late. My level is improving with the competition; it was extremely rewarding to reach the podium last summer at the IFAA Outdoor Swiss Championships, after two days of competition.

My main objective is to continue to progress. I am still learning and improving, so I am really looking forward to the next season. And I look forward to the day when I can finally beat my mate!”
