Story and History

The story of VirtualTraining began with two brothers, Petr and Jiri Samek, in the small town of Vimperk, South Bohemia. The brothers studied in a gymnasium with a cycling major, and loved to ride bicycles. While studying programming languages at Prague Polytechnic University, they realized that they did not have a tool to measure the results of cycling competitions. So, in their free time from studies, they launched “SportSoft” together with two other guys, Karel Hudecek and Jiri Kortus. An application was developed for result measurement in different sports tournaments. As passionate cyclists, they had been struggling during the winter time, and could only admire their bicycles in the garage.
