In June, Contera supported the Czech and European Middle-Distance Quadrathlon Championship at the 2019 Quadrathlon, which took place in Týn nad Vltavou for the 18th year.

Tomáš Svoboda, brother of London Olympics gold medallist David Svoboda, won the Czech and European Championship with a time of 2:35:11.69. Lisa Teichert (3:13:20.16) from Germany was the top female athlete, while 19-year-old Magdaléna Koberová (3:15:21.35) won the Czech Championship in the junior division and finished second overall at the European Championship.
