Simple is the life creed of Jan Knejp, originally from Prague, former rower at the Czech Rowing Club and an expert in water works, who in 1969 left for Sweden. There was a Czech wedding with the Czech nurse Ludmila, starting a family, work in his profession and long-term involvement in Swedish rowing. In Račice he is a team manager of the Swedes. And on Sunday just before the noon he celebrated gold medal thanks to "his" women’s lightweight scull with Emma Fredh!
Still without medals will be Saturday's rowing program at the 2017 World Championships. But everyone is looking forward to that moment, closer it is when they find new owners. Seventeen sets of Swiss-made FISA International Rowing Federation medals will be decided in Račice tomorrow, and the special edition will go to the best ladies of the women's four without a coxswain. Who will take them home? We've had a chance to see them even before the rowers, and they look like this!
