After a slow start, the Czechs moved up to third shortly after halfway, then they went for second and it looked like I was going to attack for the gold. However, in the end, they collided with the so-called crab, their boat slowed down after a wrong oar movement, and they were overtaken by the Hungarian representatives.

“How do we feel now? Like in seventh heaven. That’s what you say when someone’s dream comes true, and that was a very big dream for me,” 40-year-old Kubali rejoiced at the finish line with a medal around his neck.

“It’s bronze, but it’s gold for us. It’s the icing on the cake and I thank my family and Milan, without whom I wouldn’t be here. Just as without coach Tomas Kakowski,” said Kobach.

Secretary and firefighter

Kopáč works as a secretary in Dukla and additionally runs the Rowing Society’s Talent Identity Program that aims to support young people.

“I am very happy that I found the motivation to come back and found a partner with whom I could carry out this event. I wasn’t expecting him to go with me, but we enjoyed it since the first practice and enjoyed it for the 1990 metres. The fact that the top ten didn’t come out with a silver medal, I told Milan what I thought and that’s the end It’s up to me,” Kopacz added. Victor “caught” the so-called cancer at the finish line.

Like Kopáč, 31-year-old Viktora stopped paddling at the summit a few years ago and is currently a professional firefighter in Pardubice.

“Training was more difficult, especially on my part. One day I serve for twenty-four hours and then I have two days off. Add a family, two young children. Moving to Prague was more difficult, but we made it through. I intensified it in the last three weeks, But she succeeded in the end.”
