I am happy of first place and although I do not know how much help my win in final placement of our University, so I hope that I help raise the profile of our faculty and UPJŠ in the sports field," says Barbara Kantorová.
Barbara is busy with school and skiing. It is like two full-time works at the same time , because full-time study at the Medical Faculty UPJŠ is not be resolved by individual study plan. She recognises the sport can not do all her life, so she decided to study field of study, which is closely linked.
"Physiotherapy is closely linked to sport , I can called it motion therapy. It is a way to be health without pills and I'll be glad if I join my sports experience with a professionalism. I'll be able to help people with movement disorders. I find this field of study very attractive and close to me, because of my sports activity. In addition, I think that studing physiotherapy and knowledge of anatomy and physiology will also help to my sports career," she said.
