I have just come back from France where I took part in the first international competition in my life, in which I performed in the team colours of Czaplicki Fun. The contest took place over the weekend, July the 3rd/4th, in Makinito, France, near Montpellier. The Playspot was located amongst fields, surrounded by enormous plane trees and cypress trees, and the hole itself was perfect indeed. I had heard and read a lot about this place before I arrived there, so it made me extremely happy to take part in the contest. I won 2nd place in K1Kids category, scoring 285 points, which is a really good result, even comparing it to contestants in older category.

Despite the fact that I did not manage to present everything I had prepared during my training, I am extremely proud of myself, being really pleased with the huge loop I performed in the final. In Makinito, I met many great kayakers from all over Europe, younger and older ones, and it was fun to watch them and compete with them as well. On this occasion, I would also like to thank the Istres Entressen Canoe-Kayak Club as well as Olivier Kremer for the fantastic organisation and great atmosphere during the event. I will certainly join you next year!
