Croatian World Games 2010 Edition Wraps Up In Zadar



The Minister of Foreign Affairs Gordan Jandrokovic and Canadian Minister of Croatian descent Lynne Yelich have opened the Croatian World Games (Hrvatske Svjetske Igre) where some 750 young Croat athletes from 24 countries are expected to participate.

The traditional gathering of teens from the diaspora is organised by the Croatian World Congress and will last six days, with tournaments being played on sports fields in Zadar and Posedarje.

Your presence in Zadar is an additional confirmation of the solid and unbreakable ties between homeland and Croatian emigrants, which were particularly evident at the time of the creation and defence of our country in the war," Minister Jandrokovic said.

Young athletes Croats from 24 countries were also welcomed by the Canadian minister who wished them good luck in the upcoming competition, the Croatian daily Vecernji List writes.
