Company’s Faces: Aida Sukhanova
My work at Transneft has allowed me to realise that everything keeps changing in this world, and that your life can also change; you only need to want it. You should not fear changes, but learn every day and never lose heart. That’s why I decided to come back to sports despite my problems and to take part in veteran events.
Nobody pays you for such competitions, you have to find sponsors on your own. My Company helps me, financing all my trips. In 2012, I won a silver medal at the Veteran World Cup in Finland. It’s important for me that thanks to my job at Transneft, I can take part in European and world events, glorifying my country.
Now, I run 6-10 km twice a week. I do not like asphalt and prefer running in the forest. I want to continue participating in competitions as long as my health lets me do so. When I see people much older than me at championships, I want to emulate them, never rest on laurels and always stay in shape.
