Jože Mermal, the president of the BTC Management Board, has in Water City Atlantis signed individual sponsorship contracts for 2013 with the best Slovene gymnasts. The BTC Company, which has been sponsoring Slovene gymnasts for several years now, will support 11 competitors this year.

In 2013 the BTC Company will sponsor eleven members of the Slovenian Gymnastics Federation, namely Mitja Petkovšek, Aljaž Pegan, Sašo Bertoncelj, Alen Dimic, Rok Klavora, Žiga Šilc, Žiga Britovšek, Gregor Saksida, Adela Šajn, Saša Golob and Teja Belak. BTC has finished sponsoring Tjaša Šeme, who has ended her professional career, and the trainers Jožef Mešl and Edvard Kolar PhD, but it has signed a new individual sponsorship contract with a young gymnast, Teja Belak.

»Slovene gymnasts constantly excite us with excellent results at world championships. I’m happy to see that the national team boasts experience and youth which is in my opinion the ideal combination and an extra motive for all the athletes. At BTC we have been trying for several years to do our best to help them achieve their goals«, commented Jože Mermal when signing the contracts.

The BTC Company sponsors numerous Slovene athletes. It is also the general sponsor of the World Cup in women ski jumping in Ljubno ob Savinji. The World Cup took place for the first time last season in Ljubno ob Savinji and will again be the centre of attention in season 2012/2013 with the best women jumpers in the world alongside the “Devilish Slovenians” on the 16th and 17th February 2013.
