In Sports News this week: there are no medals for the Czech Republic at the World Indoor Athletics Championships, while Roman Šebrle is stretchered off with a hamstring injury in the heptathlon; Slavia Prague drop two points in the race for the Czech football league title with a draw against Ostrava in front of almost 17,000 fans; and speed skater Martina Sáblíková retains her world title in Japan.
No medals for Czechs in Valencia after Šebrle sustains injury
Slavia drop two points against Ostrava
“Twice we went in front and twice we lost our lead. On the other hand Baník kept going to the end. I can’t criticise my players for their dedication or fighting spirit. I think they all gave their all – and I think it was the same for our opponents. It’s just a pity games like this aren’t played every weekend, in this atmosphere.”
That result means second-placed Sparta Prague can close the gap on Slavia to two points if they can beat Teplice at home – that game was due to take place after the recording of this programme.
