WHEN/WHERE DID YOU START CANOEING/ KAYAKING?
I started to paddle in my hometown - Hradec Králove, at year 1998.
REASON FOR TAKING UP THE SPORT
Since my age of 8 I used to paddle in a tourist canoe, and at spring in 1998 i was brought to the club which was specialized for slalom - C1 and leaded by Petr Sodomka, famous czech paddler from 70s and 80s. And at autumn i took bronze at czech junior championships as my first competiton.
I really like it because its quite hard work during whole year, especially during winter months, but when racing or training and you hit the good line, that feeling is special, and it will not cost you any unnecessary power...
