Greatest achievements of the Czech Figure Skating

Figure skating is one of the most popular sports in the Czech Republic. Its development dates to the beginning of the 1930s.By that time, new ice rinks started to be built which enabled skaters to train more. A huge boom came after the second world war when the Czechoslovakia ranked among figure skating world powers. Since then our skaters have been winning medals regularly.
