Peking Olympic Games – Czechs have 2 medals already

Czechs – a nation of sharpshooters. Such can be the impression that Czech sportsmen have left after first two days at the Peking Olympics. On Saturday, the gold went to Katerina Emmons, for air-gun shooting, yesterday it was David Kostelecky in trap shooting.

The gold story of Katerina Emmons, the ex-model whose American husband is a shooter himself, became an internationally-known story. She also won the first medal of the whole OG. Immediately after, she started to cry, and stayed very moved through whole evening, when she got the gold.

Sport shooting is traditionally a successful sport for Czech sportsmen, but gets highlighted only once in four years at the Olympics. Anyway, the Olympics have just started, and Czechs already have more golden medals that the country gained during the last OG in Athens.
