Hello, my name is Žiga and this is my personal blog where I mostly write about athletics. You can read more about me below.
BACKGROUND & OVERALL:
I was born in 1993 and I live in Slovenia. I love my country geographically and not so much politically, but I do recognize that we’re very privileged compared to some of the other places in this crazy world. I’m open-minded and interested in a lot of things, basically pretty much everything from A to Z. I have an optimistic outlook on life and a fine-tuned sense of justice, so I don’t cheat at board games.
In 2017 I graduated from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering at the University of Ljubljana. I was never a big fan of our education system, so I was struggling to find my academic interests, but I’ve always trusted my intuition and I feel like I’m on the right path towards opening up interesting career options in the future.
I love sports and I used to train football at a local club for almost 6 years when I was in primary school. I quit for a variety of reasons, but the beautiful game still holds a special place in my heart. I’m a supporter of Manchester United, but I’m very civil about it because I really dislike team sports fanaticism.
I was usually the fastest kid at school and I’ve always loved athletics, but somehow never got into it more seriously. In 2011 I met an athletics coach who recognized my potential, so I enthusiastically decided to go for it. I trained seriously for about 3 years (400m & 800m) before focusing completely on my studies. I feel very lucky to have been in a group with some of the most talented youngsters this country has ever seen.
I will always have a soft spot for athletics and football, but I generally enjoy almost any sport because it’s a great teacher of life. It teaches us to work hard, set goals and stay humble. I’m now an ex-athlete, but I still religiously follow the sport and I love to analyze all sorts of things when it comes to athletic performances (as evidenced by the contents of this blog). I remain active and I reckon I’m still tough to beat if you challenge me to a short footrace ;).
I like to read and be informed about world news. Even though I’m not a classical bookworm, I can easily gobble up hundreds of pages if I lay my hands on an interesting book.
I’m also a home theater enthusiast due to my love of movies and the technology that goes into making them.
