Gold for Gudlevicius (LTU) in Milan Kadlec Memorial
The annual Milan Kadlec Memorial in Prague (CZE) saw a number of nationalities fighting for supremacy on a day of intense competition.
The Czech Republic junior championship took place in the beautiful environment of the capital city in a very friendly atmosphere, and 29 athletes from 10 countries took part.
Gytis Gudlevicius (LTU) was a worthy winner having led from the beginning with 258 fencing points, 1:59.84 in swimming and an aggregate shooting time of 49 seconds in Laser-Run. Marek Grycz (CZE) claimed silver on home soil ahead of Jan Kaufmann (GER) who took bronze.
In the swimming pool another athlete who attracted attention was Pillage Myles (GBR), who timed 1:53.49 in the 25m pool.
The fastest Laser-Runner in 31C heat was Paolo Singh (FRA), followed by team-mate Eudes Baptiste (FRA) and Emiliano Hernandez (MEX).
The Milan Kadlec Memorial finished according to tradition with Riding, where the best result was achieved by Lukas Svechota (CZE, 299). There were only two eliminated athletes and a high standard of horses plus reasonably hard parkour brought a wonderful competition to the perfect end.
