I've practised orienteering since I was little child. During all this time, it has been the most beatiful sport which I've loved to do. It gave me sense for beauty of free movement in the nature, it gave me some first success and helped me to find selfconfidence after vexation at maternity school. It helped me to make my first money, gave me my love and many other unforgettable experiences. Even I already skipped my carrer as a TOP level athlete, I continue to work and volunteer for this sport as a coach, mapper and event organizer. Here is a collection of my best results from my international orienteering career.

World and European Championships
