I remember when I first made some real change in my shooting. I went to the indoor competition and I hardly hitted 480 points. It wasn't easy to accept it but I was able to repeat the same (changed) thing every arrow. The competition after I shot my personal best... I know how hard some changes can be or how hard it can be to stand at the shooting line and having a feeling like if you were shooting for the first time. You don't know what to pay attention to, what's the sequence, where to start and how to finish. Usually I finish my practice satisfied but there are days when I would like to continue until I don't get it right but there's no time....so I put my bow to the bowcase thinking....will I ever do it? Will I ever reach my goal? Fortunately, I can't wait until the next practice to try again... Never ever be upset because of hard times. That's where we grow!
My first indoor world championships are over and I came home 6th individually and 4th in the team!
I do feel disappointed with my shooting last week. My equipment performed flawlessly, just couldn’t seem to get my form together but sometimes it isn’t meant to be and I feel luck wasn’t on our side during the team matches where we all shot amazing! 😊 @ella792.art @layla_annison02
It was one of the best tournaments I have been to and I want to thank everyone who supported me so much when I was out there!

This is my life and I think it's true. You have to step out of your door to see new things and meet new people. We grow by learning and observing. We grow by making experiences. Love brought me to another country and sometimes it's not easy but overall I have to say that leaving what I knew well was a first step towards starting to know myself. You discover things and skills inside of you that you would never say you had.
And maybe I will never know all the potential I have because of the rules I had to face since I've started to shoot in Italy (I am not Italian). I discovered that I cannot participate at the Italian Championships (of course, medals goes to italians) but I cannot even participate at Slovak Championships. Basically, I can participate on the regionals and as a member of team on the nationals. But I cannot compete for any individual title. Don't get me wrong, I don't shoot enough points but I don't find it right. What's sure is, that I don't shoot for titles, I shoot for passion and I always did. Thanks to all who support me anyway. Being foreigner is still a handicap in the real life. But what gives me hope is all the beautiful people I meet everyday thanks to archery! And I love to see others accomplishing their dreams (just like @sjef1440 recently!). What if he was a foreigner? Who knows...
Indoor World Championship is officially over. I finished 5th after the qualification round and 6th after the matches. Proud to be part of an amazing team and of our bronze medal🥉
Sincerely I am a bit disappointed about my shooting but now my mind is focused on outdoor season aware that I am growing day by day.
Thanks to my coaches and to all the people that support me #gaspro#beiter#primepro
I finish 5th of the Big East Championships.
1st ex-eaquo of qualification round with 583pts.
1/16 of final147pts
1/8 of final 145pts
1/4 of final 146pts, lost vs 147pts. It was a beautiful match! I lost with the biggest score of the field...
So I finished 5th ... The championship ended at midnight!
The new PSE Shootdown bow works very well! I will speak to you more in details about it this week!
I'm happy about this performance with a bow just out of the box with which I have shooted 50 arrows in practice the day before! I valid it at 100%! I was able to take my landmarks in real situation with this bow to see how it react and be ready for the French Championships.
I know henceforth what are the exigencies of this bow and those ones to take care out for to achieve performances even higher.
Now two weeks of practice before the French Championships.
Thanks to all for your support!
Thanks to all my sponsors!

CHAMPION OF THE WORLD INDOOR 2018 🎯❤️🔥💪 Super happy with the past week where I managed to plow through my individual matches as well as the team matches, with a DOUBLE gold as a result, and I couldn't be more proud of my teammates as well. Thanks @steve_wijler and @rick_vdv for everything and let this be the beginning of something good.
Thanks to all of you for supporting me and having my back, even when I am not at my best. ❤️
