Jakub Holuša in Český Těšín

The fourth stop, where the roadshow to the Ostrava support continents project came, was Český Těšín.

Český Těšín, where students met Jakub Holuša, European indoor champion and World championships silver medalist in the 1,500 meter world championship. Mr. Stanislav Folwarczny, Deputy Head of the Moravian-Silesian Region, was also present.

 

Students, together with Jakub, have seen his memorable race at the European Championship in 2015, where he finished in a dramatic finish for the gold medal. Subsequently, they had the opportunity to talk with the Czech recorder about how he had started with athletics, how he trained or how his life looked. Jakub willingly handed over his rich experiences to the students. Subsequently, there was a signing and making pictures together. "The Continental Cup is a great event for athletes and fans. For many athletes it will be one of the top of a career. I am glad to support young and start-up athletes as part of this project and we may find some new champions," he said.
