A Rower Must Believe in Himself. He can achieve big things then...

The Czech junior women’s eight won gold medals at the two previous World Championships. The coach of the crew – Iva Uhlová - played an essential part in its success.

The junior women’s eight kept up their golden tradition in spring when they won the European title. The European Championships were also very successful for other Czech crews too. We caught up with both coaches at the final training camp of the season for the national junior team.
