Anezka Drahotova is one of the most versatile athletes in the world. She is a world Junior record holder at the 10,000m race walk, she is a world class cyclist, she has run 10:10 for the steeplechase and she ran a 1:14 half marathon with little or no specific training for the road racing world.
In August, Anezka will compete as a senior in the European Championships in Zurich at the 20,000m distance. In September, she will be in Spain to compete at the World Cycling Championships.
Jiri Sykora won the decathlon the hard way yesterday: he gutted it out, with a nice big PB in an event he is not especially fond of; the 1,500 meters. With Tomas Dvorak and Roman Sebrle texting you between each event, Jiri had huge support from his country!
