In Sports News this week: the Czech cross country skier Katerina Neumannova takes silver in the ladies' 15 km pursuit at the Nordic World Ski Championships in Japan - but can she go all the way and win gold in Tuesday's 10 km free?; Czech football goalkeeper Petr Cech wins his first medal of the season as Chelsea lift England's League Cup; and Milan Baros gets a goal in his first full game for Lyon.
Silver for Neumannova in ladies' 15 km pursuit in Sapporo...
"It was a really good result for me. It has relaxed me ahead of the rest of the World Championships. Sometimes you miss out on gold and you're left with silver, which happened to me in the ladies' pursuit at the Olympics last year. But today I feel I have won silver, because I didn't feel I had the strength to win. I gave my all at the end of the race."
...but can she go all the way in 10 km free?
Neumannova hasn't been the only Czech among the medals in Sapporo: Dusan Kozisek and Milan Sperl took bronze in the men's team sprint.
