Sara Olivova’s Family
Sara Olivova was born on May 22, 1993, in Ostrava, Czech Republic. According to her social media, she currently lives in Prague, but she also resided in Michigan and Georgia.
Sara is the daughter of Daniel Olivova and Jana Andrys. Her parents are both athletes in their own right. Her father, Daniel, was a volleyball player who captained the Czech junior national team. Her mother, Jana, was a track and field pro on the Czech national team.
Sara Olivova’s Education and Career
Like her father, Sara Olivova has played volleyball since eighth grade in the Czech Republic. The family moved to Detroit, Michigan, where she began her freshman high school year at Seaholm High School. As the school’s accomplished volleyball player, she was named all-league, all-district, all-region, and all-state honorable mention as an outside hitter.
Olivova attended Georgia State University, where she was on the volleyball team roster from 2013 to 2015. She majored in exercise science, made it on the dean’s list, and accumulated athletic honors before graduating in 2016.

While growing up in the Czech Republic, Sara also skied from ages eight to 12. She was drawn to volleyball after moving to the U.S. And after earning AVCA All-American honors at GSU, the volleyball community believed she had all the potential to be an Olympian.
However, the big question on everyone’s mind is whether she would represent the U.S. or the Czech Republic. When asked if she would win medals for America on the international stage, she replied as follows:
“I would love to, but I only have a green card. So, I think I’m trying for a dual citizenship, but I’ll probably rep the Czech if that happens.”
While we haven’t seen her at the Olympics yet, Sara Olivova has continued with volleyball professionally. She represented the Czech Republic on European and world tours while continuing her studies in holistic health and nutrition.
Olivova currently works to help clients as a nutritionist, metabolic coach, and wellness expert.
Sara Olivova and Petr Mrázek’s Relationship
Ostrava-born Petr Mrázek played in Canada before the Detroit Red Wings selected him in the 2010 NHL draft. According to several reports, they have been dating at least since he was playing in Detroit.
Although their respective athletic careers make it difficult to meet up, their individual social media pages reveal they take every opportunity to spend time together. That included the off-seasons, holidays, and even downtimes due to injuries.
