olimpijciThe B&H Paralympics team will take part in the Winter Paralympic Games in the Russian city of Sochi.

This will be the team’s second appearance at the Games, and two athletes will represent B&H, alpine skiers Ilma Kazazić, who will carry the B&H flag at the opening of the Games and Senad Turković.

At the press conference, the President of the B&H Paralympics Team Mustafa Demir emphasized that a good result is expected of the B&H team.

‘’We hope for good results from our athletes. Everything is ready for their travels and performances. The only problem until now has been the lack of snow, due to which they were not able to best prepare for this. However, we believe that the organizers of the Games in Sochi will create the best possible conditions’’, said Demir.

Kazazić said that she will give her all to achieve a good result, but that the lack of snow on the mountains in B&H significantly impeded preparations for the Games.

Turković said that he always goes to win, and will give his maximum in Sochi. Turković is the only competitor in Sochi with both legs amputated, and on 13 March he will compete in the Slalom, and in the Giant Slalom on 15 March. Ilma Kazazić will compete in the Giant Slalom on 16 March.

The B&H Paralympics Team will depart for Sochi on 4 March.
