What's your story?
I was born in Brod, small town in the suburb of Ljubljana city near the famous canoe course Tacen by the Sava river and it seems like the paddle and canoe has been placed in my cradle than. When I was young, our family holidays we often spend by and on the rivers of Slovenia, my favourite is smaragd beauty Soca river. Now, as I train canoe slalom for approx 22 years I reached many succses. I am favorite for being very fast, have a excellent stroke in the padlle, but also make a lot of touches on the course, but still fast enough to beat the sport competition fighters.With my gold medal on World championship in 2017 they put me beside other Slovene sports legends as it has been the first gold for the C-1 in the history of Slovenia in this sport category.
Canoeing is one of my biggest life occupation and happines as I love my job I am doing. Wild water in her several stages is my motivation and inspiration. While canoing I find peace in my mind and also healthy adrenalin in my veines.
Only one unrealized sport goal is still in my heart: Olympic Medal! Then my sport dreams since the childhood will be reached at whole.
