The first evening of Inspirational Sports Stories was open with a greeting speech from the Mayor of Bitola, Natasha Petrovska. In a pleasant atmosphere we had the honor to listen to the personal stories of the prominent athletes from Bitola such as Gordana Cvetkovska-Boshevska, Olivera Nakovska-Bikova, Biljana Churlevska-Manevska and Ana Kotevska. They shared their experiences on achieving the sports results, the commitment and endurance in order to meet their goals but also about the challenges and difficulties they faced throughout their sports careers. This event is part of the initiative “Women Leaders in the Sports Industry” supported by the Embassy of France in Macedonia. Caroline Pottel Zlatevska, the director of the French Alliance Bitola was special guest at the event.
