  1. Our national TV right now replaying the Beijing 2008 Canoe Slalom finals This was just hilarious how incredibly strong we were there. 4 Events = 3 Golds, 2 of them within 30 minutes and Kaliská winning the W K1 by 12 and half seconds

The show is the second Netflix production to be filmed in Slovakia after last year Dracula miniserie. Van Helsing season 5 were shot around the Orava castle the next one should be apparently the witcher for once it´s not about hostel or eurotrip...

  7. Absolutely. This was a very bad decision. Both K4-1000m and Canoe Slalom C2 were literally the best events of both sports !!! and both had to be sacrified becaise of that Bach´s gender equality bullshit fetish... (and both events are now replaced by literally the biggest jokes events of both sports) and after Tokyo the same will happen to 50km Race walk no words ...
  8. +1 My fav moments: The countdown before the start of the ceremony, then the quick recap presentation of the previous games hosts and then the main and only thing it is all about for me. the PARADE of NATION and then the official oath and Olympic flag entrance because of tradition and then the cauldron After that I rewatch the parade of Nations once again and then go on right to the Day 1 of competitions

  13. so that happened... I broke my leg (right finger) today, the doctors put me a plaster I´ll have to wear for a whole month....now it hurts like hell...but in other hand 1 full month unexpected vacation.
  14. Lillehammer 1994 - Slovakia - Canada 3-1 and the president of the republic considered establishing that day as a new national holiday... Atlanta 1996 - First ever participation of newly independent Slovakia at the Summer Olympics and 1st Gold won by a unknown 16 years old kid named Michal Martikán Nagano 1998 - I remember how I woke up in the morning at 4 AM and watched the women's biathlon relay, 3/4 of the races we were clearly in the golden position, but in the end we finished just behind the podium in fourth place. I remember how I cried. one of those fucking days it was then... remember we were still without any WOG medal at that time Sydney 2000 - The Hochschorner Bros winning the C2 Canoeing Slalom gold with literally havig fingers in their nose was simply magic. + watching SVK football, Basketball and water polo teams playing at the Olympics, something still almost unbelievable for our country Salt Lake City 2002 - Disaster for our hockey, due stupid rules of NHL owners, all our stars were allowed to play in the tournament only from the main round, so first SVK had to qualify from the 1st round, we send like 9 players for those 3 matches and were hoping to qualify, obviously we finished last of the group...so my memory to watch all our huge NHL stars arriving before the last preliminary round game and sitting in the stands is just one of the worst I can remember... Thanks god 3 months later our stars were back and we became the World Champions ! one of the biggest paradoxes in sport history Athens 2004 - My first true Olympics, I watched in integrality, almost 24 h/per day. I remember visiting my doc and offered him 20 Slovak crowns asking him if he can write me a 2 week absence, I was super happy when he did it, I was 2 weeks closed in my room watching the Olympics lol...this became a tradition now, so since 2004 I became a real Olympics addicted and Torino 2006 - First ever Slovak WOG medal won by a guy I never heard about before and never heard again after. a certain Radoslav Židek in the Snowboard Cross of all sports lol Beijing 2008 - Our best Olympics, 3 Gold medals in 2 days, 2 Gold medals in 2 hours and total domination of our Canoeing Slalom destroying the opponents winning 3 of the 4 golds available in this sport Vancouver 2010 - My favorite Games. I just love them. First SVK gold Kuzmina in the opening day, SVK ice hockey triumph in the quarterfinals over SWE 4-3 but also the tears after the loss in the Bronze medal match to Finland 3-5 (when we were still leading 3-1 after the 2nd period) The last real tournament of our golden generation. London 2012 - The worst games for SVK. The only summer olympics without any gold medal, literally a failure after failure in our team...at least my fav athlete Jessica Ennis-Hill winning gold saved the games for me Sochi 2014 - Another gold for Anastasiya Kuzmina in Biathlon W Sprint...but otherwise nothing but disappointement...losing to Slovenia with the NHL full pack team we had there is one of the worst memories I have from sport..oh man, I still remember it like yesterday, I was so pissed...you realy must see such match to understand the nightmare experiences I had Rio 2016 - First ever SVK gold from another sport than Canoe Slalom...man it was about time the epic Matej Tóth 50km Race Walk gold is something I will remember for all my life. PyeongChang 2018 - Kuzmina triumph in the mass start meaning she became the first female biathlete to win gold at 3 consecutive Winter Olympics...
  15. and today is exactly 40 years from the only Olympic team sports Gold for Czechoslovakia. The 2nd of August 1980 former Czechoslovakia defeated in the last Moscow 1980 event the former 1-0 in the Men Football tournament to win the only and single Olympic Team sports gold in the history of the country (Until Nagano 1998 Ice Hockey triumph of Czech Rep.) The team played its group stage in former Leningrad (St. Petersburg) beating 3-0 and despite two later quite disappointing ties against 1-1 and 0-0 won the group to stay in Leningrad for the quarterfinal where they eliminated 3-0. In the semifinal in Moscow Czechoslovakia defeated the former 2-0 to qualify for the gold medal match Interesting enough, Despite winning only this single gold Czechoslovakia won in total 14 medals in team sports at the Olympics in its history (1920-1992) 2 in Football (1-1-0) Gold in Moscow 1980 and Silver in Tokyo 1964. Fun fact Czechoslovakia was in the Gold medal match also during its olympic debut in Antwerp 1920. But the history mention the team as DSQ. After the players left the field in protest against the refereeing in favor of host Belgium during the final the team was DSQ and removed from the results. 1964 Silver medalists, the only Czechoslovakian team in history of the Olympics in whom the Slovak born athletes were in majority (9 of them) 2 in Volleyball (0-1-1) Silver iin Tokyo 1964 at the Volleyball Olympics debut and bronze in Mexico City 1968. One of the best ever Slovak Volleyball players Bohumil Golian played in both toutrnaments. He was even honored being the flag bearer of Czechoslovakia at the Mexico City 1968 Opening Ceremony parade of nations 1 in Handball (0-1-0) Silver in Munich 1972 with 3 Slovak players the team lost to in the final 16-21 1 in Field Hockey (0-1-0) Silver in Moscw 1980, Already wrote about tis total WTF miracle, a team with 3 Slovak girls was send to Moscow only as a replacement of many other decling replacements at the very last momet. the girls were literally "collected" just a couple of days before the games began. many of them were at work or on vacations, they came, and returned home with a shocking silver. Despite this success, the sport never succeed to gain any particular popularity or attention in both countries sadly. And is still almost inexistant. 4 in Ice Hockey (0-4-4) The most popular and national sport in both countries.

There were no Slovaks in the team tough. in the first post WWII WOG in 1948 St- Moritz the team won Silver (lost gold) only via goal average rule, the team shockingly tied with 0-0 but the overall goal average of the tournament ended in favor of the Canadians 69-5 to 80-18 for Czechoslovakia). The team was led by One of the biggest star of Slovak hockey history Ladislav Troják. In Innsbruck 1964 Another Bronze with 3 Slovak players in the team including huge stars like one of the best world goalies Vladimír Dzurilla and top winger Jozef Golonka.

Silver in Sarajevo 1984.
