World Cup in whitewater slalom kayaking

20th - 22nd June 2008, Prague, Troy

World top race again like last year in Prague Troy. Everyone who saw the start list was looking forward to watching the race - totally rightly.

M: Without a doubt very prestigious race but not only concerning the sport matter. The best race of the year 2008, because no other race has so many participants of the world top class, even no the Olympic Games. So I came to realize very well the importance of the race and so I adapted the preparation. Literally days spent on the internet watching videos, reading interview, finding results,... As soon as the first racer started I was in my element. Thanks to pretty high quality of the sound we could create a “hell atmosphere”! When the visitors started to “freakout” I was feeling like a winner...

D: Commentary and moderation in English, using other languages as much as possible – not only Czech naturally, but also French (including live interview) and also a bit of German. Sunny summer day and the course area full of visitors. Fantastic atmosphere! Especially the finals of kayakers were awesome. During races of Stepanka Hilgertova and Lukas Kubrican our commentator tower was pulsating in its own life given by the cheering audience. Official ceremonies weren’t absolutely ok, so we’ll improve them. Vavrinec Hradilek (Czech representative in Olympics), Campbell Walsh (Great Britain) a Robin Bell (Australia) were from my point of view the most pleasant racers that I made a live interviews with.
