Quotation: "It's the magic in risking everything for a dream that no one sees but you."
I met with climbing when I was 6 years old, and at that time this sport was just another hobby for me. But later, I realised that sport climbing is not just some sport I "accidently" met with. It has become sort of way of living.
I started competing when I was 9, and since then, competitions became my »drog«. Just when I was at high school, before the final exams, I stopped climbing for like 8 months, because I was too suffocated with everything. I kind of used this time for stuff that I wasn't been able to do in years when I was training so hard.
Soon after first competitions, I got into youth team, and at that time, I achived three youth world championship titles, and two times second places. At the age of sixteen I also started to compete in world cup, where my first competition was in Chamonix, and also my first world cup final.
Besides this, I also climbed at rock, and I did my first 8b already in 2002, and before that I did already 8a on sight. 2006, was very successful year for me. Not just on the competitions, but also because I climbed my first 8b+ route Kaj ti je deklica, and my first 8c route, named Strelovod, both in Mišja peč in Slovenia. This year I also sent Histerija 8c+. And for all my results and achivements I can thank to my coatch Aleš Jensterle who trains me from my early childhood.
Now, I can't imagine life without cimbing, without competitions, which at the moment really mean me a lot. I want to dedicade this few years to competitions, and achive as many tops and good resaults. But when I finish,.. Well, I'll let myself surprise.
