Slovak athletes make solemn vow before President ahead of upcoming Olympics

Gymnast Barbora Mokošová and Paralympic athlete Radoslav Malenovský made a solemn vow in the presence of President Zuzana Čaputová on behalf of the entire Slovak Olympic and Paralympic team on Wednesday, in the courtyard of the Presidential Palace in Bratislava. The 32nd Olympic Games will take place from July 23 to August 8 in Tokyo and the Paralympics are scheduled from August 24 to September 5.

Altogether 41 athletes will represent Slovakia at the Olympics. Nevertheless, as was recently announced, Slovak cyclist Peter Sagan will not participate due to health reasons. On the other hand, sprinter Ján Volko will represent Slovakia in two disciplines - the 100-meter sprint and 200-meter sprint - and will thus become the first athlete to represent Slovakia in these two disciplines.
