How did it all began? My brother was the actual reason why I started to swim. When I was a child, I attended folk dance classes. I liked it, but by that time, my older brother just started with swimming. I went to see his training session once and I liked it so much that I wanted to try it right away. I knew that my parents have a lot of costs with my other activities, but I still asked my parents if I could swimming like my brother. My parents agreed on that, but I needed  to make a choice between folk dances and swimming. For me it was an easy one.It was a love at first sight.

 

My swimming beginnings were difficult. When I start with something, I want to do my best. That's how I had it and still have it with swimming. I don´t understand swimmers who train only for 50%. In my opinion, that can't make these people happy. I was also motivated by the fact that I wanted to repay my parents, who allowed me to swim. They paid for everything, they drove me and my brother to training sessions. I saw how tired they were and also, how difficult from a financial perspective it was for them. Knowing all the circumstances, it was something that pushed me forward! But in the beginning, I still took 4ths places at the youth championships. I was sad about it, but I knew I would break it one day. In 2010 came the first successes, the first medals the first records breaking.

 

 Gradually, my performance grew, thanks to which I got into the national team. At the age of 14, I won the adult championship of the Czech Republic for the first time on the 100 m butterfly track. My parents and I were very happy, all the diligence and hard work returned.

 

 At the age of 15, I went for the first time to represent the Czech Republic at the senior European Championships, where we won a medal in a relay. And since that time, I was a legitimate member of the national team.

 

 I'm so proud that I've made it this far in swimming. But I know that without my brother and my great parents, I would never have started swimming. And I am extremely grateful to them for that.
