Slovenians are proud of our world-class athletes, whose achievements, enthusiasm and heart inspire millions of sports enthusiasts around the world, and in doing so, arouse fans' interest in the country they come from. With Janja, we look forward to creating new inspiring stories and preparing for the Olympic Games in Paris, for which the STB, together with the Slovenian Olympic Committee and Slovenian athletes, is preparing a special promotional campaign."
