Czech canoe sprinter Jaroslav Radoň ends his sporting career

10/12/2016 - Czech canoeist Jaroslav Radoň decided to end his sporting career after the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. The 2012 European Champion in C2M 500 metres event finished seventh in this year’s Olympic Games together with Filip Dvořák. This was his second appearance at the Olympic Games. In 2012 he and Dvořák finished fifth in C2M 1000 metres event. His announcement came as a bit of surprise since Račice (CZE) will host next year’s canoe sprint world championships, but Radoň said in his statement, “One day it had to come. After Rio and ten years in professional sports and eighteen years on the water I decided to end my career.” He would like to remain in canoeing as a coach. He wishes to work abroad, “and as soon as possible,” added 30-year old canoeist.
