In an unexpected New Year’s visit, Croatian Sandra Perkovic, double Olympic and world title holder and considered for almost a decade as the best discus thrower on the planet, arrived in Havana to receive the first days of 2019.
She spread the news herself in Instagram, where she shared some photos and a text where she wishes her friends 2019 happiness and talks about how important it is to set goals in life.
“The new year is before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. We can help write that story by setting goals, happy new year my friends".
Although the Croatian woman has not yet announced the purpose of her visit, the Croatian press talks about her trip as an opportunity to get to know the island and escape a few days of the European winter.
Aged 28, Perkovic has remained almost undefeated in the last few seasons and her only defeats were at the hands of Cuba’s Yaime Perez and Denia Caballero.
For 2019, the Croatian will have among her most important commitments the Diamond League and the World Championship in Doha, two competitions where once again she will face the representatives of the country she is now visiting.
