Twenty-eight-year-old Ogrodnik has one season. In his introduction, he increased his personal record to 65.61 meters and is the only Czech athlete who regularly wins the Diamond Champions League. The year that successfully crowned the silver medal at the Continental Championship.
This is the reason why he won the best Czech athletes for the first time and won traditional polls. "I certainly did not expect to win, because there were two or three followers to win, so I was very surprised, but I was very happy," said Ogrodníková. He did not listen to the general when moderator Aleš Háma trained the names because he did not want the order to be known.
He wanted to approach his predecessor at the athletic throne house of Spatakos. "I think if he is here, I don't know if I win, maybe not. It will be worth it and that is his, so it makes us a little easier this year," said the Czech Athletic Queen this year. .
The best junior is Amalie Švábíková, who won the Junior World Cup and finished ninth in ME between adults. The discovery of the year was chosen by midfielder Lukáš Hodboď, a surprise finalist for the European Championship.
