Czech Canoeist Wins at World Cup

For the first time in his career, canoeist Lukaš Rohan won the World Cup in water slalom. On the artificial canal in Troy, he won by the right-touch in the first goal of the final race. Another Olympic athlete among canoeists Tereza Fišerová has added to the collection of medals of the introductory part of the World Championship this season.

Last year, 26-year-old Rohan, runner-up, beat two-time world champion David Florence of Great Britain by 24 hundredths of a second.

However, the son of the head of the race’s organizers in Prague, Jiri Rohan, has not yet received a medal in the Cup series. His maximum is sixth place. His success in life was in tune with the continuation of the Olympic season, which he began as a participant in the Tokyo Games in May. Jiri Rohan finished thirteenth at the European Championships in Ivrea, where he defended silver in Troy.
