How do you prepare for the winter? During the winter, I train 6 times a week, twice a day,
first on the water and then also fitness or running.
What does paddling mean to you? Paddling means everything to me, because I can’t find myself without it. It’s also the thing you do when you’re having problems anywhere else and you’re under stress. By doing this, you relax and disregard everything else. I can’t imagine life without a kayak.
Which match do you remember as the most beautiful so far: So far, my favorite match is the World Youth Championship in Ivrea 2018, because it was my first big match, and with the team races we won silver with the girls.
Favorite course: Pau, France
Do you paddle even when you’re not training? Where do you like best? Kje najraje? As I mentioned earlier I also paddle for rest and relaxation and not just when train.
But I still enjoy paddling in Solkan and Most na Soči.
