Disgusting defense of the coach who raped the athlete: We were experiencing happiness!

She was on the verge of a promising athletic career. She could have followed in the footsteps of the legendary Czech javelin thrower Barbora Špotáková (41), but Tereza Vytlačilová’s (26) dreams were dashed after she was repeatedly raped by her own coach Jaroslav K. When everything finally ended and the trial came, it was hard to listen to his absurd defense, which borders on impudence.

It’s been more than six years since the trial with Jaroslav K., but reading that defense still makes sense. From May 2011 to July 2014, the former athletics coach repeatedly abused the then javelin thrower Tereza Vytlačilová, who talked about her crazy ordeal for the Bez frazí website.

All this hell started when she was 15 years old. In March 2016, the trial of the defendant began. “I don’t feel like I’m abusing my position,” Jaroslav K. said before the trial even started. “She assured me that she only wanted to train with me, that I was her best friend, that she only wanted to be with me. Then we got closer than was healthy,” was his defense.

Happy season? It was hell

What Tereza describes as a nightmare lasting several years, Jaroslav K. spoke of as a happy period. According to him, they were happy together. “She always hugged me and then the stupid male vanity. Of course I returned it, there was caressing and kissing, she surprised me how happy she was.” recounted his version of the story. “We had such a happy time, we were good together.”

But Vytlačilová talks about those events in a completely different way. According to them, he abused her for several years and, for example, reserved a room with a double bed for both of them at races.

However, the outcome of the trial with Jaroslav K. seems like the ultimate injustice. He was originally sentenced to six years in prison, but his sentence was halved after an appeal, and in the end, Tereza found out that he had only been behind bars for less than a year! “It doesn’t feel fair at all considering what he did to me and how I feel,” she stated in her story. And while she still suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder to this day, the culprit in the whole case got off very lightly in the end…

Although Tereza is still struggling with the consequences of the trauma she experienced, she showed great strength when she decided to talk about her fate years later. He wants to help others find the courage to report similar behavior. He also appeals to all those who suspect similar behavior not to let it go and try to listen to the victim and help her.
