Tomas Celko wins and captures second World Cup rank
Two weeks ago Piotr Lobodzinski (POL) celebrated a double Masters Race victory in Prague and Vienna and thereby made great leaps towards the World Cup medal ranks. Today in Olomouc he suffered a small setback and lost 20 valuable points. While one of his main opponents Tomas Celko (SVK) won the race with a time of 1:53.00, Lobodzinski needed 2.55 seconds longer for the 420 stairs and had to be pleased with rank 3 – 0.14 seconds behind second placed Czech athlete Pavel Hrdina. Tomas Celko already won the quite close qualification round, where the last one of the later finalist was less than 13 seconds slower than Celko’s time.
Proud champion of the women’s competition (without international participation in the final) was Sandra Schützova, who finished the final climb in 2:26.25 minutes and beat experienced compatriot Lenka Svabikova by 1.25 seconds.
