• Czech Republic coach quits after Sochi


    PRAGUE: Czech Republic ice hockey coach Alois Hadamczik quit on Monday (Tuesday in Manila) after failing to lead his team further than the Sochi Olympics quarterfinals, the Czech Ice Hockey Association (CSLH) said. “Alois Hadamczik resigned from his post today, he announced his decision to the CSLH head,” the association said on its website.

    The Czech Republic, including NHL stars Jaromir Jagr and Patrik Elias, were beaten 5-2 by the United States in the quarterfinals. Hadamczik, 61, has led the Czechs — who won the Olympic title in 1998 — to two world championships bronze medals since he took charge in 2010.
