The players received a special visit on the first day of the competition. On behalf of the Slovenian fan club Slovenia Top Fans, Aleksander Javornik, a well-known supporter of Slovenian national teams, greeted everyone gathered at the Zlatorog venue.

“I love sports and was happy to come to SPINT 2018. I make no distinctions between sports, but para athletes absolutely enthused me. They really deserve our support,” Javornik was enthusiastic and added that he will come back to support the players to SPINT 2018 again.

Javornik is often the centre of attention as he comes to major competitions (basketball European championship, handball world championship, football world cup) in his signature costume, often also bringing a replica of the winner’s cup along.
