The Olympic women’s javelin champion Barbora Špotáková has split from trainer Jan Železný, who during his own career was the most successful male athlete ever to compete in the discipline. The two said they had reached agreement to dissolve their four-year association due to differing views about training, with Špotáková reportedly insisting she needed to tailor her schedule to take in caring for her first child. The 33-year-old, who this season became European champion for the first time, does not plan to engage a new coach.
