Zdeno Chára Was Cheering up the Slovak Athletes in Boston

On 1st March 2015, the 34th World Indoor Rowing Championship took place in Boston, USA, where Slovakia was represented by two competitors: Milan Lackovič and Marián Tóth. Both competed in the category of visually impaired at 1000 m distance race.

Our visually impaired athletes have also been encouraged by the Slovak hockey defender, Boston captain Bruins Zdeno Chára. He is the tallest player that ever played in the NHL and is also the first Slovak player to win the Stanley Cup (in the 2010/11 season) as captain of the team.

Marián Tóth took part in the World Championship for the first time and with a time of 3: 34,1 he finished in the fourth place when he was less than two seconds away from getting the bronze medal.

Nothing but a victory was expected from Milan Lackovič after last year's victory and an excellent result achieved at the recent European Championships. He eventually succeeded and with the time of 3: 05,2 became the second time in a row the world champion.
