Kaspekova’s progress was rapid, and it wasn’t long before she was competing on international youth teams.

This experience, combined with the expert guidance of his parents, saw him crowned Ukrainian senior national champion at the age of 16.

“At that age it didn’t feel strange to compete with adults. It felt like something I had to do rather than a conscious choice,” she continued.

Teenagers usually clash with their parents sometimes, and the Dnipro native is no different. Despite his obvious talent and impressive resume, being coached by his mother and father was a roller-coaster ride.

„It’s very complex and has many layers,” she said with a smile.
