Sports success of the LFP students in 2021
Facultas nostra 2021, December
Although medicine are demanding studies, there are active sportsmen among medical students. Ice-hockey players find their employment in the Pilsen Academics team (a joint team with the West Bohemian University); however, we can find further students who can manage to harmonize sport and studies in disciplines that do not fill media that often.
One of them is weightlifter Petr Stránský, student of the 5th year on General Medicine. He participated in the Academic Championship of the Czech Republic in weightlifting that took place on 14th August in university campus of the Masaryk University in Brno. Petr took part in the weight category below 81 kg, where he successfully defended his title from the last year by lifting 125 kg in snatch ad 150 kg in clean and jerk. He went through the contest without a failed attempt.
Further athletes presented themselves at the Czech Academic Games 2021 in Olomouc. They took place on September 2 – 7 and comprised academic championships in 22 sports. Participants of academic world championships, international university championships or World University Games appeared among the representatives. Barbora Bucháčková and Hana Malánová who represented our faculty in aerobics. The contest had two rounds in which the participants had to follow the leading instructor. The strength of all competitors was very even. Barbora and Hana qualified for the finals together with six more participants. In the finals, they took the fifth and the seventh places.

The Charles University sent also an ultimate Frisbee team to the academic games. The team consisted of students from various faculties. Eight mixed teams took part in the tournament. The Charles University played a dramatic final against the teams from the Czech Technical University. In the end, the CU beat the CTU in the last point and left for home with the golden cup! The Faculty of Medicine in Pilsen was represented by our student Anna Dvořáková.
