Where did you start with paddling? In Prague Troja 

Why are you doing this sport? I always had very close relationship with water and sport (see HiKO team member Štěpánka Hilgertová:)) so gradually I have been spending most of my free time in boathouse and in kayak. Especially in summer, when it´s warm, you just have to love it. 

The most favorite course: Al Ain, Penrith (Australia), Čunovo (Slovakia), Troja (Czech) 

Your best experience on water: When I did my first eskimo roll in action. As a reward I got GameBoy and sometimes I still play SuperMario2:) 

Goals and planns for future: add some medals from world competitions to my collection 

What you like to do when you are not in kayak: sleep, eat, read, watching movies/serials
