Judo, Slovenija


Vito Dragic is from Slovenija. At the early age of 5 in 1999, Vito joined JK Impol and began his sports career. He was also interested in other sports, especially basketball, but judo is the one that stayed. In 2008, Kay's career and life changed forever.

Vito has a lot of problems with injuries, however, since he was injured for the first time during high school, he met physiotherapist and physiotherapist Matej Cebokl in rehabilitation, who impressed me with this profession, and he decided that he wanted to become one too. 6 years later he successfully graduated from Alma Mater Europaea majoring in Physiotherapy. He loves our Pulse cold therapy system to do recovery every time he trained or injured.


Vito said: “Either way I turn the story around, judo has created me into who I am. He has shaped me physically and mentally, brought me to my dream profession, made me friendships and acquaintances in many fields all over the world, and I am grateful for all of this, more than for any medal or recognition.”
