Anton Shipulin: biography
Russian biathlete Anton Shipulin hails from the Siberian city of Tyumen. The athlete was born 21 August 1987 in a family of professional skiers and biathletes. Partly for this reason since birth, the child’s fate was decided – he was destined to play sports.
With 3-4 years of age, the future star of biathlon (and both his sisters Anna and Anastasia, and Anna is a twin sister of Anton) was intensively engaged in skiing under the guidance of the father of Vladimir Ivanovich, which also took him to the training camp. Anton’s mother, Alla Abushaeva also had to do with this sport. It is noteworthy that the parents of the athletes were masters of sports in ski racing, biathlon.
During perestroika, my parents had to change my occupation, which was not at all connected with the sport. The coach for the athlete took a friend of his mother, which Shipulin was engaged in skiing until the age of 14. During this period, sister Anne started practicing biathlon. Somehow after a workout, she brought home a rifle that Anton has arisen a great interest in weapons. After much persuasion, his sister did let me touch the rifle. The next day, the athlete decided that it would address only the biathlon.
Since then, the biography of Anton Shipulin is closely connected with the biathlon. And in 2010, Anton decided to get higher education for his or her occupation. So in the biography of the journalist, appeared in the Ural Federal University in which the athlete was trained in a magistracy of the Institute of physical culture, sport and youth policy.
In 2002, Shipulin came under the guidance of an experienced mentor Mikhail Novikov, cooperated at that time with Svetlana Sleptsova, and began to train in Khanty-Mansiysk. This event has become a milestone in the life of an athlete.
In 2004, the guy graduated from the 11th grade of secondary school in Tyumen, and then, in obedience to the request of parents and following the example of the older sister’s Nasty (which, incidentally, is the Olympic champion of Vancouver in biathlon from Slovakia), he entered the law Institute of the MIA of Russia in Tyumen.
Higher education was not the easiest time in the life of an athlete. The fact that in addition, the student is seriously engaged in biathlon, did not help the loyalty of teachers, which required knowledge, and not awards. So he had to rewrite night notes and lectures, to cram the rule of law, and a day to train to exhaustion. But subsequently, the athlete was not sorry that I had to teach so much information.
While training at the University Anton actively participated in the Junior Championships from Khanty-Mansiysk, where he was spotted in 2006 by coach Vladimir Petrovym. At the invitation of the famous specialist athlete moved to Yekaterinburg, where it is now. Since then, the sports biography of Anton Shipulin came to a new level. 2006 brought the first major athletic success in sports career at the world Championships Anton Shipulin has won gold in the relay.
The next year brought the Russian team a whole collection of awards, among which was a bronze in the pursuit, the sprint silver and a relay gold. Biathlete Anton Shipulin has seriously declared itself in the big sports. Since 2008, the athlete included in the national team of Russia, which is still. At the world Championships Anton showed excellent results, winning stages in the sprint and pursuit. The relay also brought the first place. That year gave Shipulin and championship in Europe.
The performance at the World Championships in 2009 did not show such excellent results, as it was before. Young biathlete ranked only 72nd place in the sprint, but that was his logical explanation – fees in the national team postponed its mark, the athlete simply did not have time to recover for the start of the competition.
Predominatly the 2010 season showed that Anton is very confident in his abilities: the results of the season, it was officially recognized as the best shooter among biathletes of the world, which allowed him to take a leading position in the national team.
Previous achievements of the athlete allowed him to take part from Russia at the Olympics in Vancouver, where he has failed to manifest itself fully, clearly affected by the absence of experience of performances at competitions of such high level along with famous athletes, and the race does not deny it. The result of the competition was only the bronze medal for the men’s team relay (by the way, your stage Anton had brilliantly, not allowing a single miss on the shooting range) and subsequently, the veteran was awarded the medal » for merits before Fatherland from the President of the Russian Federation.
In the seasons of 2011-2013 in the World Cup, the athlete began to show stable results in shooting and skiing. The result of hard training were the first, second and third places in various competition stages. Marksmanship has become a hallmark of the athlete.
The main event in the life of any athlete — the Olympics. Anton Vladimirovich Shipulin is one of the leaders of the men’s biathlon team Russia. Him had high hopes, because the pre-Olympic season has brought him many successes and awards. In recognition of the Anton and the biathlon track in Sochi is very tricky.
Long days the Russian team could not get on the podium of the Olympic games in Sochi. That all changed on February 22, 2014, the last day of competition biathlon. The men’s team won gold in the relay. Alexey Volkov, Dmitry Malyshko, Evgeny Ustyugov and Anton Shipulin took part in the last race of the biathlon. Thanks to the genius of the fourth stage Shipulin our guys got the long-awaited victory, because Russia won the men’s relay over 34 years.
This year has been a landmark in the career journalist, he became Olympic champion in the relay. For these and other athletic achievements, Anthony was awarded the order of Friendship, which was presented personally by the President of Russia Vladimir Putin.
