About me

When I was three years old I sat in kayak for the first time. My father was a kayak coach but he didn’t force me to do this hard sport. During my childhood I tried many other sports such as judo, ice hockey, athletics and football. I was good in these sports but they didn’t make me happy. Once in a while I came to boathouse and paddled just for fun. While I was enjoying hunting ducks and watching small fish from the boat, I found out that kayak has an important place in my heart.

 

But sometimes I still need some rest from paddling under my coach Karel Lestina. Ideal place is fishing in a small stream with my grandfather. So far my body works good but on the other hand I still need to improve my spirit, so right now I am studying the University of Chemistry and Technology.
