Czech Republic: Viteckova Keen On All-Star Appearance

07 February 2006

Czech Republic and Gambrinus Brno star Eva Viteckova is relishing the prospect of testing herself against some of the best players in the world at next month's EuroLeague Women All-Star Game.

The 24-year-old admitted a busy schedule with Brno and the national team has left her fatigued at times this season but she welcomed the invitation to line-up for the All-Stars in the Hungarian city of Pecs.

"I will play with the biggest stars and it will be a great experience," she said.

"I was probably selected because of our (Czech Republic) success in the European Championship last year.

"I will travel to Pecs together with two players from our league (Americans De Lisha Milton of Brno and Janell Burse of USK Prague) and manager Dusan Niznansky," she added.

On her packed schedule, she said: "I was tired after the game in Mondeville.

"We (Brno) played Sparta Prague in the Czech league shortly after arriving from France. I only slept for two hours between games. It was really very hard but we had two free days after that and I am okay now."
