Celebrations

Slovak hockey players celebrated in the streets of Bratislava after their fantastic bronze success at the Olympic Games in Beijing. In a convertible bus, they moved across the city to the SNP square, where thousands of fans were waiting for them. As the official photographer of Slovak Olympic and Sports Commitee and Slovak Ice Hockey Federation, I documented their success from the Olympic qualification, through the Olympic Games (which, unfortunately, I spent in quarantine) to the celebrations in Bratislava.
