Looking at the start list, there is another remarkable name to be mentioned. It is Václav Zitta, the Czech Indoor rowing “devil” who has already won three silver medals in different distances at the European Indoor Rowing Championships. He also took part in the first World Urban Games in Budapest this September.

The biggest star among Czech women will be the reigning World U23 Indoor Rowing Champion Marie Natalie Jurková. She earned the silver medal in the open category at the last European Indoor Rowing Championships in Copenhagen.
