  Memorial to fallen Czech hockey players
by GentleSpirit

On September 7, 2011 the plane carrying Lokomotiv Yaroslavl hockey team members crashed in Russia. Aboard was the captain of the Slovak national team Pavol Dimitra. Olomouc had an impromptu memorial set up to remember Jan Marek, Karel Rachůnek, Josef Va?íček, the Czech players aboard that plane. Gone too young in their early 30's. RIP
