Sport unites. We’ve seen the proof of that once again today at the 15th Slovenia Open Thermana Laško, when Larisa Ocvirk and Zala Friškovec, basketball players of Women’s Basketball Club Cinkarna Celje, visited the biggest table tennis tournament for the disabled along with their coach and head of Slovenian national team, Damir Grgič. They followed the games in the sports hall of Tri lilije closely. Tomorrow we will be able to see the 1640th game of the tournament.
“At this point I can just say, respect to you all – players, athletes, to all the volunteers and members of the organizing team, who has managed to put together such an exceptional sports spectacle in Laško. We are happy that our basketball players have also been invited to Laško, where we were able to see for our selves that the obstacles do not exist. Athletes with disabilites are a great inspiration to us all,” said Damir Grgič and ,on behalf of the club, expressed his full support to all, with desire to see us again in October, when Celje and Laško will be hosting the World Championship for the disabled in single events.
