Again, she did not surprise us and achieved a magnificent performance. We will continue to support her and all successful women."
Career and sport at the same time

Stating that she can do sports together with a successful career journey, Güney said, "The specific difficulties of business life in Istanbul are known. Although it is not easy to create time in the crowd and pace of the city, it is possible to train intensively with a bit of dedication. I would like to invite everyone -whether they have a sporting past or not- to take this path. As long as they want, the rest comes naturally" and highlighted that she thanks the Suzuki Turkey team for their support.
