Minsk, June 26, 2019 - Croatian table tennis player Tomislav Pucar won a bronze medal at the second European Games in Minsk (June 21-30) and reached – with the third place in individual competition – the Olympic standard for Tokyo 2020. After being beaten in semifinals by the current European Champion, Germany’s Timo Boll,, with 1-4 (4-11, 9-11, 5-11, 12-10, 4-11), our table tennis player once again superbly presented himself in the fight for bronze by beating the Ukrainian of Chinese origin Lei Kou with 4-1 (11-2, 9-11, 11-9, 11-7, 11-2).

Minsk, June 25, 2019 - Croatian Tourist Board (HTZ), the golden partner of Croatian Olympic family and permanent sponsor of the Croatian House at the Olympic Games since Athens 2004, prepared - in cooperation with the Croatian Olympic Committee’s Marketing Department - the promotion of Croatian tourism in Belarus. The event at the Hilton Hotel in Minsk, attended by representatives of the Zagreb Tourist board, attracted great interest among Belarusian tour operators and travel agencies’ representatives. The presentation of Croatian tourist offer was unavoidable, and the beauties of our country leave no one indifferent.

Minsk, June 23, 2019 – The Croatian representatives at the second European Games in Minsk (June 21-30) finished the third day of competitions by winning two medals. The historical gold was won by Lucija Babić in Sambo, after beating the Ukrainian Kateryna Moskalova with a convincing 4-0 in the finals. In the quarterfinals, Babić defeated the Belarusian Namazava with 3-0 and in the semifinals the Moldova’s Budeanu with 3-2. Since it is a sport  typical for the former Soviet Union states (Sambo is a combination of several martial arts, and in translation from the Russian reads: Self-defense without weapons), the success of the Croatian athlete is to be extremely valued.
