My story

I've been in sport since I was a kid. I tried a lot of sports before I finally found what really fulfils me and what I enjoy. This is long-distance running in the mountains, which I have been doing for just over four years. During this short time, I have been able to run through a large chunk of the world and compare myself to top runners at international level.

However, I most appreciate the ultramarathon mountain course at TDS in 2018 (126 km / +7 500 vertical, a series of UMTB races), where I was able to stick in the TOP 20 elite runners (with 1600 qualified racers starting) before I was forced to withdraw due to health reasons at 100 kilometres of the race.

After a successful attempt to defeat and break Bob Graham Round as one of the first Czechs, it's time for another challenge, and one of them will be the 2020 GR20.
