The stories of six Czech Olympic champions who successfully represented the Country for many years. The rowers Mejta and Jindra already reached the highest step of the podium at the Olympics in 1952 and were followed by Kozak in 1960, the cyclist Daler in 1964, the high-jump champion Hübnerova-Rezkova in 1968 and the wrestler Macha in 1972. Even at that time the way to the top required many years of hard work and the economic conditions were very different from the nowadays. Many athletes already had health problems or financial difficulties that forced their withdrawal from the world of glory. Only in recent years the Czech Olympians Club, which is a part of the Czech Olympic Committee, has been trying to show respect to the oldest Olympic winners, who were forgotten for decades. The time of oblivion is over.
