Two golds for Czechs from the Youth World Champs again
by Milan Čubík
When we obtained two gold medals last year on the World Championship at home – in Chotěboř (Czech team and Jindra Kalivoda), I was sure that next championship in Slovakia (2010) would be much more difficult. Possible defending of either of these two gold medals I therefore considered as big success. That is why we started preparations for the next championship already at the end of school holidays 2009. We made a dash for practice to Slovak rivers where the competition should be present with the group of potential junior representatives. We left out just Poprad river as it was not possible because of time. But training on the Belá and Váh rivers was very beneficial. Even the flows of both rivers were little changed after this year floods, during the Championship itself we could utilize a lot of knowledge from last year practice. In March we had a ground preparation yet, where we mainly tied, adjusted leaders and also learned something from the theory.
