Milan Michalek, 25, will be making his Olympic debut for the Czech Republic and he will do so alongside his older brother, Zbynek. They will be one of six brother combinations competing in Vancouver (Belarus’ Andrei and Sergei Kostitsyn; Finland’s Jarkko and Tuomo Ruutu, Mikko and Saku Koivu; Slovakia’s Marian and Marcel Hossa; Sweden’s Daniel and Henrik Sedin).

Michalek commented on being named to the Olympic roster with his brother: "It was our dream to play together in such a big tournament. We talked about it before in the summer, and now the dream has come true. . . We played a lot in the streets all the time in our hometown when we were younger, but nothing since we were older."
