‘No winners’ as hundred mushers brave tough Czech sled dog race

A hundred mushers and ten bikers from 11 countries battled frost and snow at a five-day sled dog race in the Czech Republic, which organisers call one of the toughest in Europe. The 23rd year of the Czech Long Trail has attracted mushers from countries across Europe — including Austria, Croatia, Germany the Netherlands and Serbia. Mushers can choose one of two tracks — 300 kilometres with five stages and an elevation topping 9,000 metres or 200 kilometres with four stages and an elevation of 7,000 metres. In Czech, the race is called Sedivackuv long — bearing the name of a dog that strayed and was shot by a local man just before the first edition of the race in 1997.

Thousands rally in Prague to commemorate Jan Palach

Thousands of people marched through central Prague Wednesday to commemorate Czech student Jan Palach who set himself alight exactly 50 years ago in protest against a Soviet-led occupation of former Czechoslovakia. Palach, a Prague philosophy student, poured petrol over his body and set himself on fire at the top of Prague’s central Wenceslas Square on January 16, 1969. He died in hospital three days later.
