Life and career
Kubíková/Votruba had their best season in 1962–63. They placed 5th at the 1963 European Championships in Budapest, Hungary, and achieved the same result at the 1963 World Championships in Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy.
Czechoslovak authorities destroyed footage of Kubíková/Votruba's performances following her defection, although Votruba stayed. The pair was named one of Plzeň's ten "Sport Stars of the 20th Century" at a gala on February 17, 2001.
