Oldrich Varga is the top representative of the Czech Republic in Greco-Roman wrestling, in which he has already become national champion 14 times. In a sport that he has been involved in for almost a quarter of a century since the age of 4, his main goal now is to participate in the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris. Although Oldřich has no competition in the Czech Republic, Greco-Roman wrestling is not a sport that top athletes can fully support themselves in. Therefore, Oldřich first studied sports at the Charles University's Faculty of Physical Education and then started a business alongside training and wrestling - he founded the EMS to HOME service, which makes the method of electronic muscle stimulation, which has been successfully used in medical practice for several decades, available to the general public for training and rehabilitation purposes. "What we like about Oldrich's approach is that he actively pursues his goals, works hard in and out of training, and doesn't wait for success to fall into his lap on its own. We see this as a parallel to what we at K&L Rock strive to do for our clients in the world of investing. That's why we decided to support Oldřich and provide him with a little better background for his preparation," says K&L Rock co-founder Erik Kmet'ʹ.
