Emil Zátopek

The Czech sporting elite includes numerous famous personalities whose achievements during the Olympic Games gained worldwide attention. The top watched sporting events won by Czech medallists include Věra Čáslavská (gymnastics), Martina Navrátilová (tennis), Jan Železný (javelin throw), Aleš Valenta (acrobatic skiing) or Martina Sáblíková (speed skating) who all helped to build up the Czech Republic’s image as sport superpower. However, there is one legend honoured for remarkable accomplishments that stand out above all others – Emil Zátopek. By single-handedly redrawing the boundaries of his sport, Zátopek became the greatest runner of the 20th century.
