         About Urska Anumanchi:

Born in Slovenia, Europe, into a sports enthusiastic family, Urska, was introduced to sports at a young age. She started training Alpine skiing at 6 years and kayaking at 9 years of age and continued to do both till the age of 14. At the age of 14, Urska opted for kayaking and participated in her very first Junior World Championship in Seo d'Urgell, Spain.

Being a sport woman and loving exercise taught me to be in tune with my body through various activities like, swimming, running, squash, mountain climbing etc. My spirit of sportsmanship helped me overcome obstacles, made me strong, fit, happy and most importantly ready to face whatever life served me" says Urska. Urska retired from her professional kayaking career at the age of 24.
