Maxim Tsvetkov: biography
Consistently show high sports results Maxim Tsvetkov began almost as soon as I got into biathlon. This is confirmed by the numerous medals at youth and Junior competitions. Only gold in its asset – 5 pieces. And in 2016, Maxim together with Anton Babik and Matvey Eliseev became the main opening for the Russian sports enthusiasts.
He was born and raised in the village of Babaevo, Vologda region. There he began to play sports under the guidance of his father, Director Babaevskie children and youth sports school «Start». First, Flowers Jr. was a pure skier, but about 15 years he switched to the biathlon and the first competitions of the «polar Olympics» in Murmansk region took the first place.
At the age of 19 Maxim Tsvetkov – regular, and the leader of all the youth competitions in biathlon. Three gold medals at the world Cup in the Czech Republic in 2011 and two more in a year in Finland was chained to a young athlete the attention of the coaches of the home team. Maxim was not to disappoint them and at almost every stage at the level of the juniors rose to the podium.
But the Flowers did not live exclusively in the biathlon. Realizing that career is not durable, he graduated from the Moscow state humanitarian University named after Sholokhov received the diploma of the psychologist, and then started a second degree at the Moscow Academy of physical culture, where is now studying on a speciality «Management in sports».
Pretty good Maxim Tsvetkov started his career at senior level. On the 2013 world Cup in Holmenkollen, in the first competition he managed to finish in 8th place, for a debutant can be called a great achievement. The following season, the young athlete once again felt the taste of victory when my teammates won the relay race.
Generally, Flowers are much more self-confident in relay races and mixed races. He believes in the competition, as opposed to the individual, it boosts the responsibility for the result in front of colleagues and encourages team spirit.
It should be noted that Maxim from stage to stage improves their performance in the shooting, which propels it among the leaders. For example, in January 2016 in the individual race at the expense of accurate shooting he achieved 5th place, and a week later, again without making any mistake in the sprint race finished second, which is his personal record on a professional level.
Such devotion is very pleasing to all fans of the Russian team, because this fact indicates the great potential and great future of a young athlete.
Despite the fact that Maxim Tsvetkov – the youngest member of the men’s Russian team in biathlon, he has already become a family man. 2 Aug 2014 biathlete married to a graduate of the philological faculty of the Vologda state pedagogical University, Anastasia Serebriakova, which met for about two years. Interestingly, met young people in one of the social networks.
Of course, being the wife of a famous athlete is very difficult, and Anastasia knows it. Now the couple do not see each other often, sometimes only a few days a month, but they firmly believe that their best spent together the years still to come.
In the future, max and Anastasia are planning to live in Vologda, and to be close Tsvetkov. Incidentally, the young man forgets about his small home. He tries as often as possible to visit the Babaevo and to pay attention not only to the families but to all the people who support it. In one of his trips he visited the children’s sports section and their communication gave young students a new motivation for hard training. At other times it is on the streets of the city held a morning exercises for all comers. As Maxim says, he was very pleased that exercise came not only young athletes, but also older people, including pensioners.
