My story

My sporting career can be divided into two periods. In the beginning, I focused on the triathlon. In 2008, I started with the half-ironman and later on, I turned to the ironman distance. After a number of races, I completed this season in 2012, when I successfully completed the most demanding Ironman triathlon in the world, the Norwegian Norseman Xtreme Triathlon.

I then began looking for new challenges and moved to the ultramarathon. In addition to road ultramarathons, I took part in a number of ultra trail races. I am a member of the Czech ultramarathon team, the Czech Spartathlon team and the Czech Ultramarathon Association.
