I was born in 1991 and I am the only child from small village in the north of Czech republic.
I started with track and field in Turnov. This city is well known because it is a place where
world class discus throw meeting Memoriál Ludvíka Daňka takes place every year. When I was 16,
Tomas Dvorak, legend of decathlon and world record holder of his time, offered me to join his
training group. And this is where my story began.
He was coaching me for 4 years. Then he decided to accept the job as the head coach of Czech
Track and Field Association. I was 5th at World indoor championship in Istanbul, 8th in
European championship in Helsinki as a young decathlete. Then I moved to Rudolf Černý group.
He was coach of Barbora Spotakova for many years, world record holder in women javelin. Under
his coaching I won bronze medal at European championship U23 in Tampere.
From 2014 I train with Josef Karas, a former decathlete. I won my fy first medal from senior
championship at European championship in Amsterdam 2016 when I placed second. In that year at
Olympic games in Rio I scored 8291 points and finished twelveth. Year after I got european
bronze indoor in Beograd. My personal best 8335 was scored year after in Gotzis, the famous
decathlon meeting in the world.
Now I am focusing to Olympic games in Tokyo. My future goals is to be good and fair person.
Do decathlon in clean way and be proud of my work. I’d like to have a medal from Olympics one
day and motivate another young athletes.
My hobbies are books and history. I graduated bachelor degree 2018 at Metropolitan University
Prague. I have a sweet daughter Evelin with my fiance Denisa Rosolova, my future wife.
She used to be a very talented athlete so she support me as much as she can.
