Represented the Czech Republic at the 2016 Olympic Games – Specialty: hole-in-one – Trademark: can smile like Audrey Hepburn
Klára Spilková was born in Prague in 1994. Four years later, she swung a golf club for the first time. “I was surprised to see the ball fly – the best feeling in the world!” she says of her first experience with her sport.
For Klára, golf’s appeal is as natural as her talent for it: “The beauty about golf is that you never really know what’s going to happen, and you walk in the really beautiful nature.”
A twenty-two-year-old might seem out of place on the golf course – a place generally associated with older generations and traditions.
Just like her golf swing, Klára’s style is fluid and adaptive: “I like to switch it up – sometimes colorful Bogner pieces, another day I just wear black.”
