Vokoun led the Czech Republic to the bronze medal at the 2006 Winter Olympics, posting a 2.46 goals-against average in seven games played.
His spectacular gold medal-winning performance at the 2005 World Championships, (.953 save percentage, 1.08 goals against average and 7-1-0 record), including a 29 save shutout in the gold medal game, earned him the Best Goaltender Award for the tournament.
Obviously a lot happened in a short period of time. At the end of the day, considering everything I went through, I really felt close to my teammates and I really feel like what we accomplished, I know we didn't win it all. ... I'm really proud of how we got there and what we did once we got there.
