Getting to know the newest Sportlio member Marti Medar

We have new team meber. Here is little information about him. 


Marti is a 20 year old young man, who has been assosciated with sports, since he was a child. His background is also really versatile. He has played basketball for 10 years and chess 6 years. Even though he doesn’t take basketball and chess seriously anymore, you can still see him every now and then playing basketball or competing in chess tournaments. But right now, he is all in for long distance running, a sport which he has been training now for 3,5 years.


Even though Marti has run only for a couple of years, he has achieved some noticable results. He is a 6x Estonian Junior champion, National champion in 4x1500m relay (2016) and the winner of Rakvere Night Run 10km, the biggest running competition in the Baltic region, besides SEB Tallinn marathon. And speaking of SEB Tallinn marathon, in 2015 Marti broke the Guinness World Record for the fastest marathon while dribbling a basketball at the same competition. It took him 3 hours, 4 minutes and 15 seconds. Add all that and 4 Estonian national titles, 9th place in U-18 European rapid chess championships (2014) in chess – this guy does it all.


Because of his love and big interest in sports, he’s decision to join Sportlio team was a no-brainer. Overall he is more than excited to meet new people. He wants to help Sportlio as much as he can and elevate it to the next level. Overall Marti is a serious, funny, outgoing guy but he is more than focused, when it comes to serious tasks.
