Czechs at war over national anthemmain
The head of the Czech Olympic Committee wants the national anthem to be changed before the next Games in 2020.
This infinitely wise and sensitive ex-rower says the anthem is (a) not patriotic or confident enough and (b) too short. It’s over in 80 seconds.
The chair, Jiri Kejval, has formed a committee to find a new anthem to replace the one by František Škroup with something with a bit more swagger (like the Slovaks, for instance).
