ZAGREB, 2 Jan (Hina) – Međimurje County is the sportiest region in Croatia thanks to brilliant individuals and organisations, prefect Marija Posavec said on Friday at the hoisting of the “Međimurje – European Region of Sport 2022” flag in Čakovec.

The flag outside the county building was hoisted by gymnast Filip Ude, a silver medalist in the men’s pommel horse at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, who is now  the “Međimurje – European Region of Sport 2022” ambassador. As of 1 January, this northern county will be the first in Croatia to have this prestigious title.
