105 athletes set to represent Czech Republic at Olympics

One-hundred and five athletes from the Czech Republic will represent the country at next month’s Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. For the first time in 20 years there are no teams in the group, which is the smallest for a summer Olympics since the formation of the independent Czech Republic. Among the nominees, which were approved by the Czech Olympic Committee in a ceremony at Prague Castle on Tuesday evening, are the four athletes who took gold in London in 2012: Barbora Špotáková, Miroslava Topinková Knapková, David Svoboda and Jaroslav Kulhavý.
