The super finals of the VIAOVA game, part of the celebrations of the 750th anniversary of Ostrava, took place on 30 June on the stage 750 let historie Ostravy (750 years of history of Ostrava), built as part of the Festival in the Streets. Ten players from over 1,440 participants entered the final round.
Only one player succeeded in answering the ten questions without a single mistake – twenty-nine-year-old Jiří Augustin from Vřesina, who works in Ostrava – Mariánské Hory as a technician in Severomoravské vodovody a kanalizace (water supply company). ‘I signed up for the VIAOVA game myself. I took it as a challenge,’ the winner said. His hobbies are reading and hunting. ‘My great advantage was that I read fast, so I quickly read the question and answered immediately. I spent one day preparing for the finals, reading about the history of Ostrava,’ said Jiří Augustin, who won the main prize – a luxury cruise in the Mediterranean. ‘I’m really looking forward to it. I’ll go on the cruise with my wife, our two-year-old baby will stay at home,’ he added with a smile.
