At 15 years Gediminas was selected to attend the National Academy of Sport in Vilnius, which precipitated a great change in lifestyle , with training becoming part of his daily routine. He played as a professional footballer in several countries before reaching a crossroads in his career in his late 20s and thinking about the next step in his life. That next step turned out to be a journey to the other side of the world to play football (soccer) for Devonport in 2018. Although this contract was just for a year, he would return to live in Launceston, after romance with a Tasmanian girl and they now live together in Launceston with a baby daughter. In the meantime, Gedi was drawn in the direction of coaching, and now he is passing on the skills he learnt as a pro in Lithuania to kids in Launceston.
