A decade of distinction
Not many women's national teams have been better than the Czech Republic in the past decade.
While the MVP of the 2010 FIBA World Championship for Women, Hana Horakova, began to hit her stride in the late 1990s, the first major success for the Czechs came in 2001 when they hosted and won the World Championship for Junior Women.
Two lynchpins in the current squad, Jana Veselá and Eva Vitecková, used the event as a launch pad for stardom.
Vitecková led the Czechs in scoring at 16.4 points per contest with Veselá close behind at 14.7.
In the title game, an 82-80 win over Russia, Veselá had 18 points, 14 rebounds, four assists and a steal.
Both featured for the senior team less than two months later at the EuroBasket Women in France and have been fixtures in the team ever since.
At the EuroBasket Women 2003 in Greece and coached by Jan Bobrovsky, Veselá and Vitecková teamed up with Horakova and Lucie Blahuskova and captured a silver medal to qualify for the Athens Games.
After a fifth-place finish at the Olympics in Greece, Bobrovsky's team returned to the EuroBasket wars the following year and won gold in Turkey, avenging their 2003 title-game defeat to Russia in the Final.
Horakova had nine points, 12 rebounds and four assists in the gold-medal clinching, 72-70 victory.
While the Czechs haven't reached the top of the podium since, they have remained a force.
Bobrovsky's side came in seventh at the 2006 FIBA World Championship for Women in Brazil, fifth at the EuroBasket Women 2007 in Chieti and third at the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament for Women in Madrid to book a trip to the Beijing Games.
The Czechs did not impress in China, finishing seventh after winning just two of six games.
With Horakova skipping the EuroBasket Women 2009 and the federation taking the reins from Bobrovsky and handing them to coach Milan Veverka, the national team slumped badly and came in ninth.
But with veterans like Horakova, Ivana Vecerová and Michaela Feranciková returning for 2010 when the country hosted the FIBA World Championship for Women, and under new coach Lubor Blazek, the long-time boss of ZVVZ USK Prague, the national side made a surprising run to the silver medal.
The Czechs upset defending champions Australia in the Quarter-Finals before beating Belarus in overtime to make it to the title game.
The United States pulled away from Blazek's team in the second half for a decisive win but the Czech Republic had done much better than many expected.
Without Horakova last summer but still with Vitecková , Veselá , low post threats Petra Kulichová and Ilona Burgrová and emerging star Katerina Elhotova, Blazek's Czechs finished fourth at the EuroBasket Women in Poland to book a place at the 2012 FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament for Women.
It remains to be seen if the 32-year-old Horakova will return.
