IPC President Andrew Parsons is one of the guests visiting SPINT 2018 these days. He was happy with his first impressions of Slovenia, and after learning about the last preparations for the event, he was also introduced into the cooperation and integration of Slovenia para sports into the society, especially into projects for young disabled athletes (emphasizing the ‘Become an Athlete’ programme), which have been received very well in the recent years.

Para athletes and coaches met with Parsons in the morning, followed by a meeting with a delegation from Slovenian Ministry of Education, Science and Sport (state secretary Martina Vuk and director of Directorate for Sport, dr. Boro Štrumbelj) and NPC Slovenia leadership (president Damijan Lazar and vice-president Gregor Gračner).
