Marian Ligda

The extreme sportsman with disability ranks among the top monoski riders; he is also a long-distance handbike cyclist. Hemp protein belongs to his favourite foods.

Marián Ligda from Slovakia has hardly any free time. He has too many activities to just hang around. His energy and enthusiasm are impressive. Following a serious accident, he has been on a wheelchair for years.

Nevertheless, he manages to run his production firm, engage in organisations supporting people with disability, as well as to do sports in an active way. In winter, he takes difficult monoski downhill rides that many skiers, even those experienced ones, would barely dare to take. In summer, he sets on long-distance rides on a specially adjusted bicycle driven solely by the power of his arms.

This summer (2013), he went on the almost 2000-kilometre long Le Tour journey from Liptovský Mikuláš to Paris with his handbike. All went well and Marián achieved another admirable victory, as it happens in his life. Among other things, he took his favourite hemp bars with him on his journey.

“Hemp protein is an excellent nutritional supplement for sportsmen, I can only recommend it. Not only does it satisfy your hunger, but it also supplies bodily energy and the substances it contains are very healthy. And last but not least, the hemp powder is excellent in regenerating exhausted muscular structures, adding muscles the necessary fuel.”
