Back in March a Russian TV channel featured a Tatiana Kashirina special.
ATG über translator Sergey watched it and made some notes:
The first half is how she came into weightlifting. Started with dance, checked out the closed weightlifting room, lifted 20kg bar, faced rejection by parents, left them because of that to live in athletic camp.
She spent time with coach’s family after problems with parents.
The last third is how classmates made fun of her because of weightlifting and how she doesn’t have a boyfriend currently and dedicates everything to the sport.
If you speak Russian and have additional notes, please leave a comment.
