Where did you start: I started at age 9 at Troja slalom course. 

Why do you paddle?  I grew up with the sport and all my free time spent near water, so I started to try it. Despite the difficult beginnings, I stayed till today and I´m very happy. 

Most favourite course/river? My homecourse Troja and Lipno slalom course, and also French courses Bourg st. Maurice and Pau. 

Your best paddling experience: The joy after finishing the final run and finding that I / me have a medal, and also going down the Devilś rapids (Lipno) on a raft. 

Your future goals and plans: My main goal  for this year is U23  World championships, which will take place  near Sydney. This will be my first year in this age group, the main goal is to try to fight  to the final. I also want to get closer to the top of the Czech C1 paddlers and be able to compete with them equal. But mostly I want to continue to enjoy this sport. 

Other hobbies: florball, football, skiing, swimming
