About me

I have been attracted to water and water sports since I was little. Until I was fourteen, my path was not entirely clear, and at times it seemed that I would be a professional aquabel. In the end, however, the love of wild water, kayaking and water slalom won out.

My first coaches were my parents. With their help, I worked my way up to winning at the European and World Junior Championships levels. Today, they are still my greatest supporters and my number one fans. Thanks to them, I learned what it means to paddle for life, both literally and figuratively.

Today, under the leadership of Jiří Prskavec Sr., I am a European and world champion with nomination for the Olympic Games. I still have that childish enthusiasm that started it all, I just set my goals much higher now. And I don’t plan on slowing down anytime soon.
