Tina Mrak (born on
6.2.1988 in Koper, Slovenia, graduated on the Faculty of Sport, Ljubljana); It's been almost 20 years now since my first Optimist
miles in the home bay of Piran, Slovenia. It was love at first sight and still
lasts - only now I sail in the Olympic 470 class, together with Veronika,
making a strong and competitive team. One of the biggest successes of my sailing career is
the entry in the last London Olympic Games (470, with Teja Černe), one of the
biggest successes of our 2015 season is the European Champion 470 title. We're
training hard for the upcoming Worlds in Israel in October.
