“Day of Montenegro National Teams" was held at the main city square in Podgorica.
As announced by the Ministry of Sports and Youth, the manifestation began with the sports fair, and besides the Ministry of Sports and Youth, there were also the Montenegrin Olympic Committee (COK), the Paralympic Committee (POK) and some 20 other national sports federations.
The announcement states that the points of all sports organizations, where some of the promoters were Montenegrin representatives, were visited by the Prime Minister of Montenegro, Dusko Markovic and Minister of Sports and Youth Nikola Janovic.
"Given that this is the first year of celebrating the National Team, I am proud to say that I am very pleased with the number of citizens and children who came to this event. This manifestation, on the one hand, aims at strengthening the cult of representation, as well as to remind us about the results of our representation and players in the past years, because as a country with 600 thousand people, we are a sports phenomenon in the number of medals and achievements in sports. On the other hand, we want to tell our future athletes of what an honor and privilege it is to be able to defend the colors of the state and perform under the flag of our country," Janovic said.
In an interview with representatives of national sports federations, Markovic expressed full support for the policies of the Ministry of Sports and Youth and announced in the future a lot of financial assistance for the Montenegrin athletes,
Sports associations that entertained citizens in the central part of the city by presenting their activities are Athletic, Football, Basketball, Archery, Chess, Table Tennis and Gymnastics Association of Montenegro,
"The most important of all is that there are growing numbers of children who are engaged in sports and more and more young people who see their role models in today's sports heroes. That is why I believe that in the right way we will build a healthier and happier future for our children," Janovic said.
He thanked all athletes for everything they did for Montenegro.
