About sport clubs

  • Under the auspices of SSK-VÍTKOVICE, they meet and train at the Municipal Athletic Stadium and the athletic hall in Vítkovice, where they have an ideal, barrier-free, athletic environment throughout the year.

  • When it was founded there were only four athletes, since then their membership base has been growing and currently has over 20 active members and 6 of them are representatives. Two athletes are also Czech record holders (Obrová, Doležel). In 2020 and 2021 this team won the most medal placements at the Czech Republic Championships and was the most successful of all participants.
  • Not only does this squad participate in national and international competitions, in its five years of existence it has managed to organize a number of competitions, both in the open air and indoors.
  • Among the biggest events are the Para Golden Spike and the Ostrava Cup, which from next year will be part of the Para Moravia Cup.
  • In 2021 the 60th anniversary Golden Spike Ostrava, which included the Golden Spike Ostrava partnership project, the international Para Golden Spike Ostrava meet established in 2017, and this year saw the 5th edition.
  • Ostrava cup has had two editions, when clubs and clubs from all over the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland participated in this event.
