We are thrilled to announce that SanaClis, a renowned leader in the pharmaceutical R&D industry, has become an esteemed partner of the Croatian Ski Association for a three-year period, which will run through the 2025-26 Olympic season. This marks a significant milestone for both organisations as they join hands to elevate Croatian ski racers to the peak of world skiing while nurturing the talents of the youth.
With its unwavering commitment to excellence and innovation in all aspects, SanaClis has long been associated with supporting sports, youth programmes and promoting a healthy lifestyle. This partnership is a testament to our dedication to empowering athletes to reach their full potential and inspiring future generations to embrace the sport.
One of the primary goals is to propel established Croatian ski racers to the top ranks of world skiing, including renowned names like Zrinka Ljutić, Filip Zubčić and Leona Popović.
With SanaClis’ support, the Croatian Ski Association aims to boost athletes with the necessary resources, to compete at the highest level and enable them to achieve their dreams on the international stage. In the seasons ahead, our main objectives are not only the podiums in the FIS World Cup races, but also winning medals in the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in Saalbach (AUT) 2025, as well as a medal in the Olympic Winter Games Milano-Cortina 2026.
SanaClis also recognises the importance of investing in the youth of the future. As part of this collaboration, we are fully committed to supporting the development of young skiers across the country. Through various programmes, training camps and talent identification initiatives, the Croatian Ski Association enrols children in national team programmes as early as the age of 12. Investing in these most promising children and juniors, allows us to nurture these emerging talents and provide them with the tools they need to become the next generation of skiing stars.
Commenting on this fantastic development, CEO Alexander Fetkovsky said: “This partnership between SanaClis and the Croatian Ski Association signifies our commitment to advancing the youth of the country. Together, we are committed to creating a legacy of success and putting Croatia firmly on the map as a powerhouse in the world of winter sports!”
“I would like to welcome SanaClis to the family of our partners. This partnership will help us to not only achieve top results on the highest competition levels, but also to invest and develop the youth, which is our future!”, added Vedran Pavlek, Croatian Alpine Ski Team & Ski Pool Director.
Stay tuned as we witness the incredible journey of Croatian ski racers, supported by SanaClis, as they conquer the slopes and leave an indelible mark on the world skiing stage!
