Jurg Gotz, Head Coach comments,
“Prague is a course our team knows very well and where our athletes produced some outstanding results during last year’s World Championships. The forthcoming World Cup Series offers a great opportunity for more medal success in all four Olympic events – a valuable stepping stone into this year’s World Championships and Olympic Qualifier in Brazil (September)”’.
