Mete Gazoz, telling how his life has changed after 2016 Rio Olympiads, said, “My life has changed after that period thanks to the experience at the Olympiads. It has become a great experience for me. I realized my efforts returned back to me in a positive way”.

“I AM TRYING TO BECOME A ROLE MODEL”

Mete Gazoz, coming from a family interested in archery, stated there is no one as an example he has taken, and said, “I have always wanted to become a sportsman trying to be a good example. I proceed on my way to this end. I also try to become a role model in my daily life; however, I still have a long way ahead, and I am aware that I need to work harder.”

“ARCHERY HAS ACCELARATED IN TURKEY”

The national athlete stated that archery has accelerated in recent years in Turkey, and explained, “Archery has increased notably both nationally and internationally. Archery moves ahead every day thanks to the opportunities provided by Turkish Archery Federation. In this sense, I can tell we have been making progress every day.”

HE TRAINS FOR 10 HOURS A DAY

Mete, who has achieved to go up to the podium in great organizations such as World Championship, World Cup and European Championship, instills hope before 2020 Tokio Olympiads with the medals he won. The national archer getting ready for 2020 Summer Olympiads to be organized in Tokio reported as follows:

“My target is to earn quota places in 2020 Tokio Olympiads, but earning a quota place individually is not my priority. I care about earning quota places as a team. I would like to return back to my country with the golden medal. I keep on saying it since 2016 Rio Olympiads. I hope we can. I train for 8 – 10 hours a day six days a week.”

HE WANTS TO BECOME A SPORT PSYCHOLOGIST

Mete Gazoz, the second-year student in Sport Management Department of Nişantaşı University, stated, “If I weren’t an archer, I would have wanted to be interested in marksmanship or fencing because sport is my life. I would like to become a good sport psychologist in the future. I aim to transfer the experience I have gained for years to future generations in the field of psychology”.

The national athlete gave recommendations to the youth saying, “I recommend you to be disciplined and pursue what you love because if you do what you love, you can stand against the challenges of your job. This is how it should be in both sport or daily life.”
