“Today is a special day for sport. The Government is aware that sport is an important activity for the quality of life and health of individual people and thereby of society as a whole. Slovenia is most certainly a great sporting nation, and must remain a home of sport,” underlined Slovenian Prime Minister Miro Cerar regarding the recently adopted new annual sports programme. With an additional two million euros, the Government has increased funding for sports, particularly for the preparation and appearance of national children’s and youth teams, which will serve for the further development of sports.

The fact that Slovenia is truly a sporting nation has been proven by the sensational performance of the Slovenian handball players at the World Handball Championship in France, where they secured an outstanding result in team sports. These finest ambassadors of Slovenia, which is what sports people are, won the bronze medal, making it their biggest success to date, and they set off a major sports tremor of serious magnitude and epic shifts. Or, as the PM said, through perseverance, sacrifice and a team approach, they turned defeat into victory.
