Kayak freestyle Championships 2017.

5 weeks in Argentina run so fast and we are already back home. We went there to train and compete at World Championships in freestyle kayaking. The competition hole was situated in San Juan, the city in the middle of desert. Before we got there we didn’t have any special expectations but at the end I can say that this trip was one of the best adventure. It is funny to say as we aren’t happy with our final results at the event. We went there as a complete family - Me (Nina), my husband Peter and our little son Petko (3,5). This is the first thing which made it so great - we were all together. Second thing which made our stay so pleasant was so nice weather and beautiful scenery. Ok sometimes it was too hot but the pool next to our apartment made it acceptable. We all love swimming in the water and lying on the sun next to pool but we need action as well. The landscape around was so amazing, strange and breathtaking at the same time! We walked through desert, hiked up hills, visited zoo, museum, mine, swam in lake, saw downtown of San Juan and many more. There was no time to be bored. And of course main reason why we traveled there was a good playspot. We trained twice a day and was trying to prepare ourselves as best as we could. I think we did a great job and at the end I was feeling like in perfect shape. But sometimes it’s not enough. If you ever competed in any sport you know there are so many factors which can influence the result and sometimes you can’t do anything about it. But well that’s sport and it makes us - athletes more stronger. To learn how to work with your fail is the best way to reach the success. Despite we didn’t bring medals home (I finished 11th and Peter 10th) I fell so grateful for our time in Argentina. I leave only with great memories and miss this place so much! And now let’s the new adventure begin. See you on the river.
