Basketball players have awaken the Olympic spirit

Many kids have already been grabbed by the Olympic spirit.

They already enthusiastically shouted Who is not jumping is not a Slovene during the match of Slovenian basketball players with the Spaniards.

The Slovenes led only six minutes during a tense match, but in the end they still defeated the world champions – the Spanish team.

That match was in the morning our time, so also kids could watch it live and rejoice when Luka Dončić, Klemen Prepelič, Žiga Dimec and other members of the Olympic team scored.

It was tense until the last second, when the Slovenian basketball players celebrated the victory with the result 95:87. The Slovenian heart had won, wrote a journalist in the national daily newspaper Delo.

The team then faced the Germans in the quarterfinals.

This match was watched live by the really most loyal fans: those of you who set your alarm clock and woke up in the middle of the night as the match started at 3am our time.

All the rest who slept through the match can watch its most beautiful moments in the video.

Once again, the Slovenes were more successful. They won 94:70.

Other Slovenian competitors are also satisfied with their performances, such as athletes Maruša Mišmaš Zrimšek, Tina Šutej, Luka Janežič, and sailors Tina Mrak and Veronika Macarol.

Points to Consider

  1. What does these words mean: The Slovenian heart had won?
  2. Do you know an example when a weaker team won because they were more connected than a stronger team?
  3. Which team sport is your favourite?
