..we continue our “Introducing my sponsor…” series and give the floor to Patricija Eiduka from Team Latvia
I am 20 and I am the only female skier from Latvia who takes part in the international skiing competitions. The last season I’ve earned my career-first FIS points by finishing in Top 30 in Nove Mesto World Cup stage. I also won the international competition in Sweden and came 4th in 15k race at the Juniors World Championships.
All of that would hardly be possible without my biggest supporter and sponsor. Merks is one of Latvia’s biggest real estate developers, they are a large company with many projects going.
This is the second year of our cooperation and their support significantly helps me with important but costly training items – like, say, altitude training camps without which it is difficult to progress at the top level. I am very thankful for such an opportunity – it helps me a lot to get stronger and to move my career further.
