Baleria has 6 Ambassadors who promote Fair Play - Fair Life in sports and in everyday life:
Baleria Ambassador in SLOVENIA
Nejc Vidmar is the Ambassador of Baleria for Slovenia.
Born on March 31, 1989, he attended the Poljane elementary school, where he was one of the most recognizable students of his generation.
He likes to respond to invitations to meet young, talented football players or fans.
He has also been a loyal and excellent Ambassador of Baleria all this time, responding to every invitation, spending entire events with us and even time after the events.
He likes to visit his former school. He recently handed over his jersey to the head of the Poljane Elementary School, Žarko Tomšič, distributed a huge number of autographs and invited them to the next NK Olimpija game.
Nejc Vidmar N is the goalkeeper, who has contributed a great deal to the mosaic of the champion title for Olimpija, as he is one of the most important players with his reliable defence. But Nejc is not only excellent at the goal, he is also great at being a dad. His most loyal cheerleaders include his wife Sandra and two daughters, three-year-old Zala and nine-month-old Živa.
At the football field he was cheered on by his wife Sandra and daughter Zala, while Živa is still too small.
Nejc grew up in a family with two brothers. As the youngest of three brothers, he struggled for attention, and admits he was quite problematic. Today, the family is dominated almost by all girls.
»His older brother has three girls, Nejc has two, and his younger brother has one.
He graduated from Poljane high school. Despite being professionally occupied by football, he isn't forgetting about books and is also finishing college.
He started his football career in Crimea Football Club, transferred to Olimpija Football Club, continued his career in the Domžale team and as the most hot-blooded and loyal fan of Olimpija returned in 2016 to her ranks.
He was also a member of the Slovenian Youth and Junior Football Team and in 2019 he was called up to the member team as well.
Baleria Ambassador in GERMANY
Tanja Spill, student at the German Sport University, U-23 champion on 800 m
The 23-year old Tanja Spill is a middle-distance runner and the German (under 23) champion on the 800m distance. As BALERIA-ambassador she supported the children at the International Baleria Campus during the sprint discipline. Before the medal ceremony, Tanja challenged all children for a final 400m-run. She inspired the children with her sports performance and her perceptive and approachable style. She gave autographs to the children and answered many questions.
Currently Tanja is a student at the GSU Cologne (Germany) and is about to finish her Bachelor degree in Sport management und Sport communication. She participates for the LAV Bayer Uerdingen/Dormagen. Her record on the 800m track is at 02:01:63 minutes. With that time, she only closely missed the Olympia-standards for Rio 2016.
Even if athletics or running is an individual sport and everyone has to achieve his or her own successes in the competition, it is the result of a team performance of countless training sessions in the group. Through the teamwork before, the athlete wins the competition!
Personal Statement: “Better together” is one of the slogans that my coach taught me early on. FAIR PLAY plays a substantial role, which supports us every day not only through training but also in everyday life. A single athlete is only as valuable and as strong as the team in the back. After all, togetherness is the key to success.
