Dnevnik - Slovenia | 29/01/2013

Slovenia's top athletes can make things happen

Slovenian winter athletes continued chalking up victories on the weekend. Skier Tina Maze won the World Cup slalom race in Maribor, while snowboarder Rok Marguč became world champion in the parallel slalom discipline. The left-liberal daily Dnevnik calls for a strong sense of social commitment on the part of Slovenia's top athletes: "They must be aware that they are not only athletes, but also successful personalities, in whom - in contrast to politicians - the people believe, and whose voice is heard even louder than the voices of demonstrators. In the past there have been several athletes who have stood up for social causes and done much to further the common good. Why shouldn't that also be the case in Slovenia? The time is more than ripe. ... Moreover, top athletes's influence on people is similar to that of creative people in the world of culture, whose critical voices are heard loud and clear."
