This is the contrast of her career. Cleaning the head of Miss Samka.
That’s why she set off for three weeks to Norway, far north, to Lofoten. “Norway was the first one on my TO DO,” he explains.
What’s next on this list?She would once spend up to three months of vacation in the United States and cross the cross. And also go to Bhutan.
“I love destinations where people are not and where I am close to the mountains. I like to climb the hills. So I was already in Georgia. And while I’m at home in the Krkonoše Mountains, I tend to find myself at home or I’m out on a dog walk. I compensate for the fact that in Prague, where I am currently living, there is quite a lot of people around me. ”
She made a trip to Norway with a friend in summer. The weather was overwhelming, only two days. From Lofot, they gradually moved south.
“We slept in the car, in the sleeping bags in the sleeping bags, just over the legs we had a sail so that it was not from the dew in the morning.Waking up over the beautiful lake, or in the bay near Narvik, where dolphins and swans are, it was just amazing. We also saw a white stove on the road. Such a discovery and living on a punk really entertains me. ”
But the pleasures of living are human. In the spring, Eva Samkova had to put her body together. And in September she took the credits in college for the change.
After last season, she first went through the left arm operation. Her joint jumped too often before. “On the contrary, since I’ve done it, it’s feeling much better.”
However, her right shoulder remains in jeopardy.
“This is less destroyed and more attached, so I better control it.I also know about the spectrum of things I should not do to keep it from leaking. Only when I do not concentrate will it ever get out of my way. ”
“Even if I do not, I have a mixer.” So he likes experimenting in the kitchen at leisure. She just refined her original hazelnut spread and had a whole team with her.

“I was afraid I could not do it. I always extinguish the teachings and catch them at the last minute, like everyone else.That’s why I was stressed out in stress, in much more stress than snowboard races. “But she succeeded, she has three, so up to the second year.
About anatomy even now she claims she really enjoys her. “And with my physiotherapist, I can talk more professionally now.”
As for her sport, Samka has been the first two to concentrate. “From the second I left with the feeling that the performance in the rides is more stable and there are no fluctuations,” she pleases herself.
From her and her entire team, last for the second time overall, 40 points. “This year I want to be first. It would be strange if I wanted to finish worse than last year, “he says.
The highlight will be the world championship in Sierra Nevada.At the championships, she has finished fifth best in her career. “So this time it will fight the case.”
In Spain will take part in the newly established team competition, where it will compete with talented Vendula Hopjákovou, fifth from the last Junior World Championships.
Home in the Czech Republic will be present at the national championship and at the winter roadshow it is planning to take.
The team of Samk remained almost everything in the old. In addition to Jelínek, Jakub Flejšar is also preparing it. They will still be in the hands of Canadian serviceman J.P.Trottiera, whose hands were crossed by snowboarders or skis of many Olympic medalists and cooperated with Czech skater Tomáš Kraus.
The game of Korea in 2018 will be woven through the entire season, with both cup and championship races playing games.
She was already familiar with the future Olympic track in last season’s Cup General.
“I finished third and I liked the track. Some things were not perfect yet, but the Koreans are doing so badly, and they will definitely have everything great, “she believes.
Coach Jelínek does not think about Korea alone. Three Czech snowboard crushers were the last players in Sochi.
“Now I want to have four athletes at the Olympics.I would like them to be one more at each Olympics, “he plans.
” There is a maximum of eight people on the ground. And then what? “Says Samk.
” Then I’m done. ”
