I started with sports in elementary school. At the age of nine, I started with ski jumping and trained it for seven years. I was in Nordic Combined - ski jumping and cross-country skiing/roller skiing - from 2012 to 2018. As a teenager, I was dedicated to professional sport and in the meantime, I completed high school in Kamnik.
I showed great potential as a Nordic combined athlete with 13th place at Junior World Championships in the 2015/2016 season. I got my first Continental Cup points with 17th place in season 2016/2017. In the same season, I also started to compete in the World Cup and Summer Grand Prix. I got my first points in the Grand Prix competition in summer 2017. With getting points six times in Continental Cup races, season 2017/2018 was the best in my career. I set a new personal best result with 15th place in Planica.
I joined Club 200 with a flight long 200m in Planica in March 2016.
I decided to end my Nordic combined career after the season 2017/2018. I dedicated the year 2019 to compete in amateur cycling and managed to get some good results. In year 2020, I was a member of the Elite cycling team MebloJogi Proconcrete from Nova Gorica. In season 2021 I joined Cycling team Kranj to continue my sports career.
I am proud of my sports path. From being a ski jumper to be a Nordic combined athlete and now a cyclist. Through the path I have taken, I learned a lot and I continue to learn. It constantly shapes me into a man with clear life goals.
