BLACKROLL® in Russia: ice hockey goal keeper Jakub Kovář (from Czech Republique) is part of professional ice hockey team Avtomobilist Yekaterinburg. Good mobility and agility are crucial for goalkeeping on ice, so he never skips training with the one and only ROLL, here guided by physiotherapist and Czech BLACKROLL partner Michal Peroutka.
Kovář uses the ROLL mostly for warm up, before training and matches. After a session on ice, he never forgets to do myofascial release with BLACKROLL to get rid of tensions. According to his therapist, he enjoys great results, especially after treatment of the lower back, adductors, and calves.
Over more than five years, Kovar has been doing athletic training with Peroutka. And training paid off: he and his team won 3x bronze in the world championships. He played at the Olympic Games in Sochi, with the successful "Big Six" listed Czech Republique national team.
