The best athlete in the Karlovy Vary Region for 2019 and 2020 has been voted the talented weightlifter Dominik Oračko, who is a member of Sports Club Weightlifting Sokolov. The 18-year-old can boast of winning first place in the International Tournament of Olympic Hopefuls 18 and under in Poland and also placed third in the national championship in the Czech Republic, where he was the youngest-ever weightlifter to compete in the 200kg clean and jerk event.

The young athlete received his award from regional representatives at the Karlovy Vary Municipal Theater during the gala announcement of the results of the regional poll. "I am pleased that after a year of forced hiatus we were again able to express our appreciation for the best athletes in the region. I'm quite proud of them, not just because of their brilliant performances in their athletic disciplines, but also because they give the Karlovy Vary Region a good name. I'm very glad they've kept their spirits up despite these days not being absolutely favorable to us all, that they haven't given up, that they keep on training and that they are pushing the limits of their potential," said the Governor of the Karlovy Vary Region, Petr Kulhánek.   

The regional representative gave the award-winners framed posters, checks, and gift bags with nutritional products from the PROM-IN company. Nominations for the survey were sent by athletic clubs, gymnasiums and sports organizations.

The Karlovy Vary Regional Council's Commission for Physical Education and Sport assessed the nominations, which were then approved by the Karlovy Vary Regional Council. Awards were given to a total of 14 individual athletes, seven teams, two trainers and three retired athletes who are legends in their field.
