Perkovic and Cernogoraz Voted Croatian Athletes Of The Year

Just a quick mention about the Croatian "2012 Sportsman and Sportswoman of the Year", and some images from the shindig. Sandra dressed it up for the awards presentation, quite a departure from the usual photos of her wearing track and field sports outfits.  I posted about the 2012 Summer Olympics results after the games were over and you can watch footage of their and other the medal winning performances and read a summary of the Croatian results at the 2012 Summer Olympic Games Here.

Olympic medallists Sandra Perkovic and Giovanni Cernogoraz have been voted Croatia's Athletes of the Year 2012 by Sportske Novosti sports magazine, while the national handball and water polo teams have been voted best women's and men's national teams respectively.

This was the first such title for discus thrower Perkovic, who won a gold medal in this year's Olympics in London. She received 378 votes, while shooter Cernogoraz, who took the gold in the men's trap event at the London Games, claimed 330 votes.

It was also his first Athlete of the Year title. The women's national handball team reached the semi-finals in London, while the men's national water polo team captured the gold.
