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

The triple jumper Dana and the long jumper Jana Veldakova are twins. For many people it is quite impossible to identify which one is Dana and which one is Jana. They are always together during their life - not only in athletics. They also chose the same schools - including Technical University in Kosice and University of Matej bel in Banska Bystrica. Thus far, Dana has achieved more success.
