Why did you decide to accept the role of Ambassador of the Women’s EHF EURO 2022?

How important is the concept of sustainable development in your everyday life?
It is key. Until we started to talk about the virus and then the war, I was convinced that my only task was to contribute as much as I could to stop the warming of the atmosphere – for as long that we could adapt properly on time. Sustainable development is the way to ensure enough time to do that.
What do you think are the main parallels between sports and business?

I love both. I also understand sport as a way of life and thinking, and handball impresses me as a team game – because it is fast, smart and friendly.
Which of the ambassadors do you know best and which do you appreciate?

Katero mesto bo na evropskem prvenstvu osvojila Slovenija?
