motivational speaker, personal trainer and event organizer

kerin-obrazan-v-obleki1Rok Kerin has dedicated more than 20 years of his life to swimming and has over 7 years of professional career in open water swimming and coaching. It was during his professional career that he cooperated with many world top-class swimmers and coaches from all over the world. He has won multiple titles of national champion and raced in World and European Championships. Moreover, he is also a FINA Grand Prix marathon winner. He has participated in all major swimming marathons around the world including the biggest Midmar Mile and the longest Hernandarias-Parana FINA Open Water Swimming Grand Prix marathon (Argentina, 88 km). What distinguishes Rok from other swimmers is the fact that he trained in tough conditions. He was practically without a swimming pool enabling him to do tough trainings during his professional career which forced him to look for suitable solutions. What is more, raising funds which helped him to cover the costs of travelling and competing worldwide was left to be his own concern, too. During his swimming career he successfully completed management studies with honours from Strategic development of a professional athlete and is currently a postgraduate of management studies.
