Former members of the Czech national hockey team which won the Nagano Winter Olympics in 1998 met in Prague on Saturday, 15 years after their triumph. All but five players have arrived for the occasion; Jaromír Jágr, Milan Hejduk and Roman Hamrlík play in the NHL, Jiří Dopita plays in a lower Czech division, and Petr Svoboda, who scored the winning goal in the Olympic final against Russia, could not come from the US for work reasons. The team’s coach, Ivan Hlinka, died in a car crash in 2004. The team will launch an exhibit of photos and memorabilia from the Olympic tournament at Prague’s Veletržní palác.
