Additional information / What would you like people to know about you?

I started canoeing at the age of 12. At the age of 16, for the first time in my life, I participated in elite competitions, such as the European Championships for juniors. I came 5th in this competition, which was not a bad result. I love sport as it enables me to be in excellent physical form and travel all over the world. I also think that my profession is very interesting and not ordinary. I want canoe sprint and kayak sports to become more popular in the world. I am interested in the development of the sport I am doing, and I do all I can to promote it among grown-ups and children.
