Arnošt Petráček is the first athlete we are introducing to the Ambassadors Club. And even though we have many friends among Paralympians, Arny, in our opinion, is deserves membership in the Ambassador Club the most.
In the modern history of the Emil Open, he has not missed a single edition of the Games since 2017. It gives our budding athletes the time they need and supports their commitment, regardless of whether they have the potential to perform athlete or not. And in turn, he is a great role model and motivator for them.
But he also deserves membership because he does a tremendous amount of work for the topic of disability sport, breaking down all the myths himself, and while also supporting our story fundraisers with us. He never refuses invitations to our events and gets involved in various motivational projects with us. The most recent one, for example, was the documentary SPORT!
We got to know Arny after Rio, we helped him to Tokyo and we want to bring him to Paris!
My friend, we look forward to our next journey together and thank you!
