A Student from the Faculty of Economics of the University of Ljubljana Receives Bronze Medal at the European Karate Championships
A student from the Faculty of Economics of the University of Ljubljana, Tjaša Ristić, won a bronze medal at the European Karate Championships held in Novi Sad, Serbia. This award became a true achievement in the history of Slovenian karate for women.
The 24-year-old resident of Kranj relates her outstanding success to the merits of her coach Jak Šarabon; Rok Trost, who is responsible for her overall physical training; as well as her sports psychologist Tanja Kajtna. However, the girl admits that the main role in her victory belongs to her father Drago Ristić, who is also an acting coach and who has been supporting his daughter from the first days of her career.
“I go forward step by step. My long-term goal is to participate in the Olympic Games 2020 in Tokyo,” Tjaša Ristić emphasizes, noting that before the Olympics she will still be able to finish her Master’s degree programme at the Faculty of Economics.
It should be added that this year, Tjaša Ristić will also participate at the Mediterranean Games in Tarragona and at the World Championships in Madrid.
