Slalom skier Šárka Záhrobská says father no longer her manager

22-03-2010

Czech slalom skier Šárka Záhrobská announced on Monday that her father, Petr, would no longer act as her manager from the spring. Her father ceased to be her main trainer a year ago after refusing to take part in a team of specialists that Šárka Záhrobska was building up around her. She added that she was now looking for a specialist trainer with foreign experience. The 25-year-old skier won a bronze medal in the recent Vancouver Winter Olympics. She already has a full collection of slalom World Championship medals. Záhrobská’s clarification follows critical comments after Vancouver from her father.
