Czech ice skating duo Dusková and Bidař announce split

Czech ice skating duo Anna Dusková and Martin Bidař have announced they will go their separate ways.

Bidař says he wants to take opportunities to train abroad with a view to the next Olympics and preparations for them. Dusková though wants to stay in the Czech capital and finish her studies.

The duo won the world junior ice skating championships in 2016 and were regarded as the big hope for Czech ice skating. In last year’s European championships they were seventh.
