Defending the Gold medal from London Jaroslav showed a stunning duel with the Swiss Nino Schurter on the last day of the Olympics and although the final placing of two bikers changed in the finish, Jarda was very happy with the second place!
“The medal from the Olympic Games is always great! If someone had told me in April when removing the plaster from my hand, that I would win the Silver, I wouldn´t have believed him. I´ve showed maximum today, Nino rode perfectly,” said Jara after the race.
“I was riding not completely well, I had the stomach problems and when I speeded up I thought that I could throw up all food, so I had to go my own pace. I could ride with Nino,” admitted at the finish the double Olympic medallist and hinted that the planned to attend in his career even one more Olympic Games in Tokyo in 2020.
