Zlín’s best athlete is hockey representative Natálie Mlýnková

The 21-year-old striker is one of the most talented Czech players of her generation. She made her senior national team debut at the age of fourteen and has been a staple ever since. This is despite the fact that he has been working overseas since sixth grade, where he currently plays for the University of Vermont.

The year 2022 has been a turning point for all of national women’s hockey. The Czech women’s national team played in the Winter Olympics for the first time in history, where they qualified for the quarter-finals with Mlýnková in the squad, during which they troubled the selection for a long time America’s favorite.

The highlight of the season was the World Championship in Denmark, where the Czechs won their first ever medal thanks to their victory over Switzerland in the bronze medal match. And again thanks to the contribution of the schoolgirl from Zlín, who scored 8 Canadian points in seven games at the tournament.

“I am very happy that we pay tribute to the athletes who, thanks to their maximum efforts and their excellent performances, have spread the good reputation of our city”, Zlín Mayor Jiří Korec said. “From the city’s point of view, we try to support the sport and prepare the conditions so that the athletes have the right facilities and that as many children as possible come to the sport. It is not important that everyone aspires to be a champion in their sport. It is important that sport entertains children and teaches them to go beyond their own limits,” added Korec.

His father, Petr Mlýnek, received the HC Berani Zlín protege award at a gala evening at the Zlín Congress Center.
