Ema Klinec is one of the special people in ladies ski jumping. Even though it is not possible yet to compare her achievements to those of Daniela Iraschko or Sarah Hendrickson, it would not be appropriate to deny her talent. Being only 13, she won Slovenian Championships which means a lot. You cannot be the best in the world, if you are not the best at your homeland. This is the first step to the greater ones that are always the matter of sportwomen’s and sportmen’s dreams.
However, never should people look at the athletes and do not see the other side of their lives. Ema is not just a ski jumper, not just a sportwoman, she is a normal girl as well, in the meaning that she has her hobbies, dreams, attends to school or meets with friends. And this is what creates her image and makes her “Ema” we all know. Talking with her, it occurs that she has a good sense of humor, likes joking and having fun. Fun and risk and that is why she spends a lot of time skating.
Ambient, hard working and modest. Such features allows her to fight for the trophies and follow the way that leads to success. Not only in the world of sport. The same way can provide with good results at school as well, not to forget about other aspects of life. As it is said, it is not just about dreaming but also about attemps to make these dreams come true.
Ema is already a Junior World Champion, so far in a team competition. But if you compare her first performance at a Junior World Championships to the recent, conclusions are obvious. There can be progress seen and many promising signs. As it is written at the autograph card of the ski jumping World Champion, “more is yet to come”… and it is!
