This is Galina. She is 61 and she lives in Sasovo, Ryazan region of Russia. She used to moonlight in the local swimming-pool as a cloakroom attendant. At first sight, she is an ordinary pensioner. But it only seems so… And not because she has some resemblance with Angela Merkel.
Once she was said that a new club is to be opened in the city – a club of knife throwers. And who knows what made her go there and try. At that moment she was 57.
In a 1,5 months she won in the local competition leaving 50 participants behind. But it was only the beginning. Finally Galina Chuvina became the absolute champion in knife throwing in 2008, the champion of Europe in knife and axe throwing in 2013, three-time champion of Russia.
