Sablikova (speedskating) also won almost anything she has entered, including Rep Champ time trial on road bike.
There is a lot of other great athletes in CZ (for example Spotakova - javelin - is injury-free and has form for new world record) - we will see, ask again in November
He is one of the world's best goalkeepers and saved three penalties in the Champions League finals
The problem with other athletes is that they compete in obscure sport disciplines. Football is much bigger than mountain biking, speed skating and javelin combined...
As you say, we'll see in November. Petra, you can do it, defend that freaking Wimbledon title
