Miloslav Netušil Obituary – Death: Czech Olympic Gymnast, Miloslav Netušil Passes Away

Miloslav Netušil Obituary News: Today, depressing news was reported from Lodnice, which is close to Prague. Former Czechoslovak national gymnastics representative and national sports gymnastics coach Miloslav Netuil passed away today at the age of 77.

Mila was unaware that he was born in Chomutov on February 20, 1946, and that he earned a degree in mechanical engineering there in 1964. Mr. Hermanka, TJ Slavoj Chomutov’s head coach, guided him as he began his athletic career.

Miloslav was stationed at Dukla Prague throughout his basic military training from 1965 to 1967, when he received his training under Frantiek Dani.

Miloslav won 18 championship titles on single-handed tools and a total of 5 titles as the republic champion in the Czech Championship between 1967 and 1977.

Miloslav competed in five European Championships, finishing in fifth place twice, and two World Championships as a Czechoslovak representative.
He participated in three Czech Olympic teams during his career as a representative (1968, 1972, and 1976), and he was a part of a squad that finished fourth at the OH in Mexico.

Due to an injury, he was unable to complete the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich. His highest individual Olympic performance was a 5. paddle board in Montreal in 1976.
He transitioned to the position of Czechoslovak national team coach when his active representative career was over and held that position through the end of 1989.

After 1989, he began working with young gymnasts at the SK Hradany club in Prague.

From preparatory school to performance gymnastics and progressively returning to gymnastics at the representative level, he dedicated himself to the youngest adept of sports gymnastics.
