Tina Mihelic, a 24 -year-old sailor in the Laser Radial made us all happy returning from the World Cup in China with a golden medal. Sailing club “Labud” in Split hosted a festive reception for Tina and her coach Tonci Antunovic where crowds of people gathered to share with her the pleasure of success .
People often ignore the fact that the World Sailing in small classes is a competition between two hundred and more sailors from all over the world. That is why we are especially happy that this modest girl from our neighborhood beat all the other great sailors and set a new ranking very high for generations to come. When asked why she sails, Tina simply replied: “Because it is interesting, fun with lots of action :)”
Working in the neighborhood where Tina trains every day, I have a chance to see the trainings and efforts that Tina made. The photo of Tina’s “golden hands“ shows that it is worth the effort.
Congratulations on your success!
