Where did you start: In the very beginning I started with paddling trips with my family, following step was training in Troja… 

Why do you paddle? Thanks to my family was allways close to this sport, and also I have absolutely ideal conditions for doing it, but I paddle mostly because I enjoy it. 

Most favourite course/river? Troja, as my home course ;), but I like Pau and Sydney as well. 

Your best paddling experience: Paddlig down some nice river, succesfull race – my winnig race on Junior World Championship. And I also enjoyed realy much the fantastic athmosphere on Troja World Championship, where I was like a fan. 

Your future goals and plans: I wish, I will love paddling in the future, this is the most important thing. And my goal for the next season is succesfull selection. 

Other hobbies: Horse riding, running, skiing, kiting and yoga
