Kateřina Baďurová (Czech pronunciation: [ˈkatɛr̝ɪna ˈbaɟurovaː]) (born 18 December 1982 in Ostrava) is a Czech former pole vaulter.[1]

She finished twelfth at the 2004 Olympic Games. She also competed at the 2004 World Indoor Championships and the European Championships in 2002 and 2006 without reaching the finals.

Her best success came at the 2007 World Championships in Athletics in Osaka, Japan, where she took silver for 4.75 m vault, setting new Czech national record.[2] She took early retirement from the sport due to a serious rupture of the ligament in her left knee. After retirement, she planned to continue in the field of child physiotherapy.[3]

Since 2010 she works as an athletic head coach.[4]

Personal life[edit]

In 2010, Baďurová married Czech high jumper, Tomáš Janků.[5] The pair have two daughters Ellen (born 2012) and Nikolet (born 2014).[6]

She won the Czech version of Dancing with the Stars in 2012.[7]
