HC Olomouc's 2-1 victory over HC Pardubice on Sunday helped put the team into a tie for fourth in the Czech Extraliga. It was a good enough win to a call for a celebration featuring goaltender Branislav Konra, who decided to prepare for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Brazil in his own special way.

Taking a page out of noted post-win celebrator Julius Hudacek of the Swedish Hockey League’s Orebro, Konrad attempted the javelin, shot put and hammer throw using his own goalie equipment:

I haven’t been that impressed by a track and field effort since I was stranded in Columbus during All-Star Weekend and played hours of “Track & Field” at the great 16-bit bar.

Hopefully this becomes a thing with Konrad and he and Hudacek develop a blood feud over their post-game celebrations. Hudacek is way in the league, but this is a fine first effort from the Slovak.
