Vancouver medal count: six

In Sports on March 1, 2010 by Petr Bokuvka Tagged: , , , , , ,

Two gold medals and four bronze medals. This is how Czech athletes succeeded in Vancouver.

Two gold medals and one bronze medal were brought home by speed skater Martina Sablikova.

The remaining three bronze medals were won by Sarka Zahrobska (alpine skiing – slalom), Lukas Bauer (cross-country skiing, 15 km free) and men’s relay team (4 x 10 km).

In terms of the overall medal standings, the Czech Republic placed 13th which is the best result ever (at WOG).

  1. In my opinion counting medals is really weird approach to sport event. Disciplines are incomparable and medal count means more than nothing. I guess it goes hand in hand with the “war simulation” between nations (as we can see in Russia which is angry because of its medal count) but doesn’t really follow the ideas of sport. “The more the better” isn’t the concept sport is (or was) build on.
