Martin Kovář
The most successful competitor in Athens was, however, the swimmer Martin Kovář. He fought his way to three gold medals, created three world records in the crawl and then triumphantly ended his career. Kovář, who in the past was active as an adviser to former Prime Minister Vladimír Špidla, decided to use his experience in the Paralympic movement. Martin Kovář is also actively participating in the plans for holding the Olympic and also the Paralympic Games in Prague.
The Czech team brought two gold, one silver and four bronze medals back from the Paralympics in Peking. Swimmer Běla Hlaváčková won both gold medals.
