|Ηumanitarian Concert for Sandra Paovic held in Zagreb|
A humanitarian concert named You can do it, co-organized by the Croatian Television, the Croatian Table Tennis Federation and the Croatian Olympic Committee, was held on 29 December at Zagreb's Arena indoor hall. It was a fund raising event for the Croatian table-tennis player Sandra Paovic, who suffered a severe cervico-spinal injury in a traffic accident, near Paris, on 30 January 2009. Sandra, 26, returned home to Croatia for Christmas from Nottwil Clinic in Luzern, Switzerland after eleven months. She can walk aided by crutches.
The famous Croatian singers sang at the concert, and the special documentary film "52 minutes" about Sandra's life was shown. All proceeds will be used for Sandra's further medical treatment and rehabilitation in 2010.
Sandra reached the second round of the singles event and also played in the doubles event at the 2008 Olympic Games. Two years ago, she was among the fifty best female table-tennis players in the world.
