Today, Atlantis Water Park hosted the reception for two promising and successful athletes – gymnast Ekaterina Vedeneeva and kayaker Nejc Žnidarčič; it was organised by the BTC Company as their proud sponsor to celebrate their excellent results this season.

Recently, Nejc Žnidarčič became world champion in wildwater kayak sprint in Treignac, France, becoming the first kayaker ever to win six world championship titles. On 9th and 10th June, he also won two home sprint races in World Cup Wildwater Kayak which sealed his already sixth overall World Cup win.

While Nejc Žnidarčič is setting new records in wildwater, Ekaterina Vedeneeva is doing the same for Slovenia in the floor discipline of rhythmic gymnastics. This season, Ekaterina has won eight medals in World Cup competitions, and has for the first time ever won a rhythmic gymnastics World Cup event for Slovenia. At the European Championships, she placed 6th in all-around, which is the best Slovenian all-around result in the history of the European Championship Rhythmic Gymnastics. On top of that, she was in the finals in all four disciplines with apparatus, and placed 4th in clubs, just slightly missing out on the first medal for Slovenia at the European Championships.

These excellent results are a reflection of astonishing focus, perseverance and most of all many years of training. With their commitment and achievements, Ekaterina and Nejc spread the recognition of Slovenia and the BTC Company at home and abroad.

The BTC Company is a big supporter of sports activities that contribute greatly to a healthier lifestyle. Excellent athletes and their achievements are one of the reasons we support them. That’s why we are proudly supporting Ekaterina and Nejc on their amazing career paths and are looking forward to future success stories.
