About Lukas

Lukáš Pollert (born 24 March 1970) is a Czech slalom canoer who competed from the late 1980s to the early 2000s. Competing in two Summer Olympics, he won two medals in the C-1 event with a gold in 1992 and a silver in 1996.

Pollert also won a silver medal in the C-1 event at the 1997 ICF Canoe Slalom World Championships in Três Coroas and the overall World Cup title in the C-1 category in 1993. At the European Championships he won a total of four medals (2 silvers and 2 bronzes).

He took part in the Velvet Revolution in 1989 in Czechoslovakia which Pollert later considered more important to him than the gold medal he won at Barcelona three years later.

Being a Doctor of Medicine, Pollert retired in 2000 and is nowadays active in his career of a GP in ER of Prague's Military Hospital. He has published several books of interviews with other top Czech sportsmen ("Lukáš Pollert se ptá")
