The introductory presentation by Vice President Čorak was followed by questions about the Croatian Olympic Committee’ organization as well as practical questions such as about the beginning of categorization of the youngest athletes. Of course, they also explained the Israeli experiences on this topic. Three Croatian Olympic Committee’s representatives had answers to all of their questions and in the end, the gifts in memory of their stay at the Croatian Olympic Committee.
