His coach: Martin Stepisnik

I was born on 21.08.1953 in Celje. My first contacts with the Athletics dates back into1969- and my discipline used to be high jump. My career ended early due to a severe knee injury.

After a long recovery period I started training shot put and discus throw and won Slovenian Cup for Seniors in 1988.

In 1983 after a course for a coach I successfully passed the exams and started working as a coach. Since then I've coached many Slovenian athletes..

Among others I coached our Ex -National Team member Natasa Erjavec; my son Alena, who was a Junior National Champion in 1993 and a member of our Junior National Team for several years. I coached Nina Podergajs, our National Champion in 1998 amongst the youngest athletes.

This year, however I started coaching Janez Hudej, our National Paralympic Team member - we're preparing for The Paralympic Games in Sydney.
