Sport background

I graduated from the Institute of Physical Education with the specialization of Coach/Instructor. I started skydiving in 2007 and immediately started participating in fantastic events.

I took part in a lot of  Russian National RW Records as well as the World Records of 122-way and 202-way Sequential. Two other important events I would like to mention are 100-way Diamond and Flight of the Phoenix. And finally I participated in three World Wingsuit Records: 2009 — 68 pilots, 2012 — 100 pilots and 2015 — the First FAI World Record 64-way.

All in all I have more than 3500 skydiving jumps.

As for base-jumping, I came in the sport in 2008 and have made more than 1000 base-jumps since then. I got the second place in 2019 Base-Race in Norway and have found several exits.
