Dominating the rafting scene in the Czech Republic for almost a decade, the TR Omega Czech Women Raft team has enjoyed a superlative season on the international stage, cinching the 2018 World Rafting Championship R4 in Slalom and Overall in Argentina.

A group of cheerful and dedicated friends, the women attribute their success on the water to their warm team dynamic. Together since their first world championship in Bosnia in 2009, (where they were third overall), the team has enjoyed success after success, winning the World Rafting Championship Title in R6 twice (2011 in Costa Rica and 2015 in Indonesia), as well as countless national and European titles. Winning the R4 title in Argentina this year has been the icing on the cake for the women, who have been through so much together as a team—albeit for a few maternity breaks.

For young women in the Czech Republic, the TR Omega team members are inspirational role models and proof that it really is possible to juggle it all, somehow staying in top physical condition, while uniting their roles as mothers, friends, and high-performance athletes.


“The TR Omega women are a huge inspiration to female athletes and women in the Czech Republic. Everyone wants to be them some day to achive what they have achieved, while remaining such great friends. They are definitely women you could never be bored around!”
