Former javelin thrower Dana Zátopková, holder of gold and silver medals from the 1952 and 1960 Olympic Games in Helsinki and Rome, underwent surgery shortly after celebrating her 94th birthday last week. The Olympian, wife of the late Emil Zátopek, also an Olympic champion, reportedly broke her femur near the hip, and was operated on Saturday morning. Mrs Zátopková’s secretary Karel Engel said that the operation had been successful and that she was doing well.
