Kristina Dmitrenko – Athelete Turned Fighter In Ukraine

Kristina Dmitrenko is a 22-year-old biathlonist from Chernihiv, the champion of Ukraine and winner of the 2016 Youth Olympic Games. She has made herself a career in adult sports, and made her debut at the IBU Open European Cup!

Since the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, she has been training in the Ukrainian Carpathians, but seeing the destruction and aggression, she joined the National Guard of Ukraine. Now she is a military shooter against the Russian Army.

Biathlons combine skiing and shooting, so she is a skilled shooter.

With such amazing women, the occupiers have no chance.
