Bio
Born in Riga, Latvia in March 1, 2002. Trained in basketball actively since eight years. Other sports in early childhood developed my determination and will to win - swimming, Judo, rowing (kayaking), hip-hop dancing, and later 3x3 streetball.  But I stopped on basketball just to find excitement in team spirit.  

Today I play with club BS Riga/Ridzene, one of top 4 clubs in Latvia Youth Basketball League in the age group.  With my club I have won national champions in 2014, 2015, 2017) with me being the highest scorer/rebounder. With team I play also in European Youth Basketball League U-16 league 1 (www.eybl.lv), and in Latvia adults league LBL3. 

Up till now with my club and  national team I have played in different International tournaments.  I've been rewarded several MVPs or been chosen for Star Five group.  List of countries of different youth teams/national teams I have played with include France, Lithuania, Italy, Russia, Germany, Croatia, Belgium, Sweden, Estonia. Finland, Poland, Israel.

I'm determined to be as good athlete as possible.. In between games, I work intelligent and purposeful to prepare body and mind to ever-increasing demands of today's professional basketball. I study individually and practice on myself different methods for improvement.  Focus is on deep muscle training, explosiveness, flexibility, and athleticism. Also, pursue proper diet and planned rest activities. All that in coordination with knowledgeable professionals, coaches and physiotherapists, as well as support of sports loving family. On the court, valuable player with highest efficiency, high intelligence, high speed both in offense and defense. In offense is strong 2 point scorer under the hoop and middle distance, 3 point shooter, good assister and assists taker. In defense - good rebounder, stealer. Next steps are to profess medium distance shoots, 3 pointers, tactical thinking and more personal leadership in critical situations. 
Future aspirations: play profesionally in Europe or study in the USA and play college basketball. ... show moreless
