When and where did you start paddling?

I started in Rennes, I was about 9 years old. But I have the feeling that my parents have been paddling with me since I was a baby :)

Why are you paddling?

I was introduced to paddling by my parents, who also rode on the water. I really enjoy summer camps everywhere in Europe and I probably never stopped because of them.

What is your favorite track?

Prague Troy️.

What is your best sporting experience?

The best was when Amálka Hilgertová and I were selected for the Olympic Games in Rio, where we rode in the preliminary round. We trained on the Olympic course with all the best kayakers and had a lot of fun in Rio de Janeiro.

I also like to remember last year when I won the Under-23 World Championship in Ivree. The celebrations with the team and family were fabulous.

What is the worst part of training?

My favorite thing is summer, when I can be on the water as long as I want and just play. But the worst is the gym, especially after a long time off.

What are your plans for the future?

My goal is to qualify for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and then Paris 2024 and I want to bring a medal :)

What do you like to do when you're not kayaking?

I really like traveling and being with friends.

Who influenced you the most on the water?

Definitely my parents who taught me to love kayaking and also all the people I train with because they make training so much more fun.

Who is the best kayaker in the world and who do you like to follow on IG?

I think Jess Fox, she's great! I like to follow Denise Gardaud because of his cute daughters that he puts in stories.

What are you better than your friend Michal Smolen?

In the UNO game :)

What is it like to date a kayaker?

It is brilliant! We can train together and support each other. We can also travel the whole world together!
