Slovenia breathed as one on Sunday. A powerful mobilising energy and emotional charge have swept through Slovenes in the last few days and have united them like no other sporting event in history. Some have even compared it with the unity among Slovenes when they gained independence. With exceptional play throughout the tournament and an amazing level of unity and team spirit, the Slovenian national team brought Slovenia its first gold medal in its basketball history. And what is perhaps even more important, it showed the nation that the heart won.

The incredible level of harmony among the team members proved that everything is possible. Slovenia’s basketball fairy-tale has come true. Slovenian Prime Minister Miro Cerar congratulated the national team members for their excellent, determined and spirited play and stated that all Slovenes can be proud of our golden boys. Their heart and team play exceeded all bounds and joined the Slovenian nation as one.
