ATHLETE OF THE MONTH
Ondrej Synek (December 2010)
WR: You have just completed the perfect season. Was there anything different for you coming into this season?
OS: This has been the best year of my life. I won all the regattas at the international level and my daughter Alice was born. The difference this season was mainly in the boat. I changed my boat to Empacher and that was one of the key moments of this season. It felt perfect the first time I went in the boat.
