  Honza Cervenka: <He also played on the Czech Olympiad teams from 1980 to 1986.> He played for Czechoslovak national team, not Czech. It should be mentioned also that in 1982 he was very worthy member of silver medallist Czechoslovak team on the Luzern Olympiad together with Hort, Smejkal, Ftacnik, Jansa and Ambroz.
