Snezana Pajkic: Developing Winners

February 27, 2012

If there is anyone in Serbian athletics who fits the description “one-woman band”, it is Snezana Pajkic.

In addition to serving as an honorary vice-president of the Athletic Federation of Serbia and a member of both the Women’s Committee and the Sport Committee of Serbia’s national Olympic committee, she is a driving force behind both an innovative talent development system and the country’s biggest athletics event, which involves nearly half a million people each year.

For her many contributions and almost super-human commitment to athletics, Snezana was named as her country’s winner of the 2011 European Athletics Women’s Leadership Award.
