Briefly describe how and why you got involved in Beach Volleyball?
As a child I was very active person. Fortunately in my hometown, there was a youth sport club where I could release energy. When I got to know about beach volleyball I decided to try. I had a few successful tournaments so I wanted to continue this adventure.
"As most geographers my passion is travelling so I’m trying to connect travels with competitions."
What do you study? How do you balance your study, training and competitions?
I’m a student of geography. As most geographers my passion is travelling so I’m trying to connect travels with competitions. Sometimes it’s hard, because when you are playing volleyball you have to sacrifice many things. Lecturers at my university are very forgiving so I don’t have problems with classes.
Tell us about your experience at the 2017 European Championship of Universities. Is this your first time at an EUSA event?
Yes, it was my first EUSA event. I’m very glad that I could participate at that event. The tournament and organisation was on very high level, but what is the most importan; people and the place of the event were amazing. I could see beautiful Split, meet awesome people and make new friendships.

In 2019 the European Universities Beach Volleyball Championship will take place in Koper, Slovenia, do you hope to be there? Why do you think university sport events are important?
Of course! I really want to be there. This is a next chance to get fun. This types of events are important mainly for universities because they can show how talented are their students, so why I can’t use it?
This is your chance! What is your message to European students like you?
I really enjoyed the motto from EUSA Split 2017 #justbelieve, so keep believing guys!
EUSA would like to congratulate Dominika and her teammate on the bronze medal and we hope to see her again at EUSA competitions in the future!
