Vlade Divac, President of the Olympic Committee of Serbia, Kjell-Morten Johnsen, CEO of Telenor, the main sponsor of the Olympic Committee of Serbia, and Dragan Djilas, Belgrade Mayor, jointly unveiled the Olympic Clock today.
“I would like to express exceptional gratitude to Telenor for its support to our athletes and our Olympic Committee for five years already. We really appreciate their support and hope to achieve the best results ever at the forthcoming Olympics. The City of Belgrade also supports the Olympic Committee through its own programmes, by assisting the athletes from Belgrade to represent our city at the Olympic Games - the ultimate sports competition, and a great place to promote Serbia in the best possible way. What makes this day very special and different is the gift that Telenor donated to our city and this celebration. I am certain that this clock will function exceptionally and make our city more beautiful," said Belgrade Mayor Dragan Djilas.
The Olympic Committee of Serbia will mark in London the 100th anniversary of participation in the Olympic Games.
“This Clock will remind all our citizens of the world’s largest and most prestigious sports competition, emphasizing the role that Telenor plays as our partner in promoting Olympic values and supporting the athletes. We have been together on that path since 2007, and Telenor has helped us improve conditions for our athletes,” says Vlade Divac.
Telenor provides backing for the Olympic Committee of Serbia for the second consecutive year. Its main goal in donating the Olympic Clock to the city of Belgrade is to reaffirm athletic and Olympic values, such as respect, fairplay and the competitive spirit.
