Early life and education
Ivana Trump was born on February 20, 1949 in Zlin, Moravia which is a small town in Czechoslovakia to Miloš Zelníček and Marie Francová. Her love and talent for skiing prevailed from a very young age and her father always used to encourage her into pursuing her dreams and to make a good career out of skiing.
Although there are little to no reports about her schooling, Ivana graduated from the Charles University which is located in Prague. It was also reported later that she didn’t continue her studies because she wanted to try out her luck with skiing and see how long it took her.
Ivana was supposedly also selected for the 1972 Winter Olympics in the category of skiing. Her specialities included downhill and salom. In 1989, the Secretary General of the Czechoslovak Olympic Committee confirmed the news that there was no one named Ivana registered under the category of skiing in the 1972 Winter Olympics.
