Koukalová to announce retirement...

Post by trotro » Thu Mar 29, 2018 3:33 pm

Voted sportswomen of the year in December 2017 Gabriela Koukalová missed the 2018 Olympics due to an Achilles tendon strain. It now seems things are not well in Camp Koukalová , she has said that who she thought were trusted friends and team members have abandoned her following her health problems. She says the team thought she was faking her problems and accused her of treason for not attending the Olympics. She's barely spoken to her coach for a year.


There is now speculation that one of women biathlon's brightest stars may not be back in 2019, or at least not with the Czech team. According to Czech TV commentator Pavel Novotny Koukalová will announce her retirement this summer.

Big shame as she was a great biathlete and such a star. Super lovely person too.

But I know Czechia went nuts over her and the wear and tear must have been immense (remember Neuner).
