Valenta wins first czech gold at the Olympics
Let's turn to the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City and the Czech teams first gold medal of the games. In the free-style skiing aerials event, Ales Valenta made Olympic history on Tuesday by becoming the first competitor to successfully execute - wait for it - a clean triple back flip with five twists. By Peter Smith.
"I do not know. I am so happy now but I think the greatest euphoria is yet to come. Of course I had to trust myself - but it was a lucky shot. It's a kind of jump that either works or not. You can never say you are sure to make it."
So - well done Valenta, and let's hope that the hockey team can match his achievement by bringing back the gold.
