I was brought to the sport by parents when I was five years old. I am devoted to many sports activities.

I gained the most significant achievements as a member of Slovak national teams

in downhill skiing, later Freeride skiing, or football.

 

After the spinal injury in 2005, I have been in a wheelchair, but continued to be devoted to sport.

I love Freeride skiing and free terrain. Freedom is for me the greatest pleasure. I am among the five sitski skiers on the planet who rides the most extreme slopes of the world steeper than 45%.

 

We also handbike across the country together with friends, athletes and celebrities to collect funds

to help novice athletes or children with disabilities.

Since 2011 I'm building awareness about sledge hockey in Slovakia.

Along with Curling it is the only team sport for disabled people in our country.

 

I represent Slovakia in sledge hockey from 2012, I'm also a Czech league player in the colors of Zlín.
