In the Czech Republic the general championship consists of three disciplines, short, middle and long distance. In each category a fancier has to have three pigeons, so overall the competition is based on nine best all-round pigeons from one loft. The short distance category has a maximum of fifteen prizes and the three pigeons with the five best races from 100 - 400km compete. For middle distance there are twelve prizes and three pigeons with the four best races from 300 - 600 km are selected. Finally in the long distance category, a maximum of eight prizes means that two pigeons with three best races over 500km compete along with one pigeon with two best races over 700km. Each pigeon can only be selected for one category, so nine of the very best racers are required to win the title of general champion. That is no mean feat!

It is the fourth time that Lubomir has breed crowqned national general champion after his sucsess in 2010, 2012, 2013 and now 2016. At the beginning of the season he starts with fifty-eight cocks and thirty-four hens. thirty-four pairs are raced on a total widowhood system, whilst twenty-four cocks are raced on a classic widowhood system.

Six out of the nine pigeons that won the title are related to Lubomir's base breeder, Toni.
