He made it. Hyundai A-League championship winning coach Vitezslav Lavicka stuck to his guns and successfully marched to the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge today and lived to tell the tail.

Hyundai A-League championship winning coach Vitezslav Lavicka stuck to his guns and successfully marched to the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge today and lived to tell the tail.
After the Sky Blues registered their first win of the 2010/11 season last weekend, Lavicka stayed true to his word and put his clear dislike of heights well and truly behind him and conquered the Sydney icon.

“I was a bit hesitant when we started but once we got going I was fine. What can I say, it was an amazing experience. Something I will never forget,” Lavicka said.
“I remember when I first came to Sydney that I thought to myself how amazing the Bridge looked and how difficult it would have been to create. I was with my daughter Tereza so it was very special moment for us up there today.
“I want my team to follow me and climb to the top. We will do everything we can to do that.
“I also want to say how professional the Bridge Climb people are. They made it a perfect experience.”
Although his side received a much needed confidence boost after the 3-0 win over Perth, Lavicka and the Sky Blues turn their attention to Saturday night-s clash with the high-flying Brisbane Roar at the Sydney Football Stadium (5:15pm kick-off).
The Roar currently sit second on the table with six wins, four draws and one loss and are playing an entertaining brand of football which will provide the Sky Blues with a formidable opponent.
“I think Brisbane and Adelaide are playing the best football in the A-League so full credit to them. It is a good challenge for us on Saturday. Brisbane has a lot of mobility. They changed the team and are doing very well,” Lavicka said.
“We will talk about tactics and formation between now and the game. We improved a lot of things in Perth. Every player gave their maximum effort there. We are expecting a very tough game but we picked up some confidence in Perth so we are excited for the game.”
