How are you Taras? What are your plans?
Taras Ivakin: I want to take part in professional competitions, provided PAL has any proposal for me. I’m ready. I also need to decide which events I can take part in. I’ve chosen PAL and NEMIROF 2013. I won’t be able to compete in the European Championships, nor in the World Championships. I have to make a choice.
We’re looking forward to seeing you on the professional stage!
Taras: Best regards to the readers!
