Jana Veselá

Former top basketball player


When you grow up in a basketball family, it is only natural that the first thing you pick up is a basketball. On the top of that Jana found she is damn good at that. So when she started to climb sport´s ladder, the world soon took notice. She became an NBA female winner. With her team, she won a gold medal at the European championship. And she achieved silver in the World tournament.

When she was accepting the prize for the best Czech female basketball player she already knew something was off. Despite all of her successes, she felt empty. What do you do when you suddenly find out that you are living a life you do not want?
