Biathlon

Nika Blaženić

Hi there! I’m Nika, 22 years old biathlete from Croatia. So here is a little recap on my history in sport. My parents would put me on skis since I was little girl back to when I’ve had 6 years. I would alpine ski with my parents and this is the time when I’ve also joined the hometown cross-country ski club. I was very active and trained cross country skiing since then. While in middle school I’ve also tried other sports besides cross country skiing, like basketball (even though I’m pretty short girl 😅) and swimming. Swimming is also sport I’ve continued to train until I’ve finished with middle school and also participated in few competitions. I’ve also tried biathlon but didn’t train it actively back then. I was already in my highschool years when I started to train biathlon more frequently. Since then I’ve fallen in love with biathlon and I’m training and competing very seriously. I’m really happy with my improvement so far. Next season 2019/2020 will be my first season in World Cup and I’m already looking forward to it. I’ll for sure be in sport for the rest of my life and hopefully like an athlete for many more years.
