Don’t be surprised if you see in the news one day that Dominik Hasek climbed Mt. Everest.
While he’s currently stepped away from his hockey career, the veteran goalie has been pursuing a variety of interesting activities.
He played beach volleyball, skied on a glacier in the Alps with Czech Olympic downhill skiing medalist Sarka Zahrobska, crossed Albania by bike (he even thought about cycling through Kamchatka), and in the last weekend he competed with professional drivers while racing at the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Race in Barcelona.
“All those activities keep me in good shape. I still think about returning to play hockey next year, so it is important for me to do other sports now and be ready,” Hasek said after returning from Spain to his home in Prague.
