Mayor of Novi Sad Mr. Miloš Vučević, together with the Member of the City Council in charge for Sports & Youth Mr. Predrag Svilar, received today the athletes from our city who distinguished themselves at the European Sports Games in Baku and won medals in this prestigious competition. The reception was also attended by the Serbian 3-on-3 Basketball National Team – Dušan Domović Bulut, Marko Savić and Marko Ždero, as well as Ivana Jandrić, who won gold medal in sambo in the up-to-68 kg category.

- Our City Hall is once again honored to welcome our outstanding athletes. Today we are proud to receive these exceptional athletes who won most prestigious medal at the recently held European Sports Games in Baku. I congratulate Ivana Jandrić and basketball players for their wonderful results, since we excelled both at sambo, and at 3-on-3 basketball. We thank them wholeheartedly, for they represent their city and their country in the best possible manner. Athletes have not only our gratitude, but also significant continual support throughout the year from the funds provided by the City Administration for Sports and Youth. – said Mayor Vučević and pointed out that particular attention is devoted to sports which traditionally have lower media coverage.

Ivana Jandrić extended her gratitude for the reception and pointed out that among all the receptions she attended so far – at the President of the Republic, or at the Provincial Government – this one, taking place in her home town, is the one she cherishes the most. On behalf of the basketball players, Marko Ždero thanked the City Administration for Sports and Youth for their continuous care regarding conditions in which these successful athletes train, but also for providing services and assistance in organizing tournaments.
