He worked as a master electrician at a fuel plant in Vrshesov in western Bohemia. Vida, even the foreman of electricians can become one of the most sought-after trainers in the country. Radim Rulik has made a me for himself in the past, is showered with superlatives after winning the U20 World Championship silver medal and is at the peak of his career.

In the country that gave the world hockey, they raised the credit of the overlooked Czech industry to a level that no one here remembers for twenty years.

There is also a certain self-confidence that if it were not for coaching, I could earn a living in a different way, which is very important, ”he said with satisfaction in an interview with the Sport newspaper in the spring.
