To her credit, Hlaváová has received numerous endorsement deals due to her swimming achievements.

Dijkema has been playing volleyball for her country since 2010, and she has been a member of several successful teams throughout that time. The volleyball player has won numerous medals throughout her career, and at only 31 years old, she still has plenty of time to win more.
