Like very few things in history, the corona has brought the world to a halt and sent a clear message on the priorities of every man and the society as a whole. The new concept of social distancing and communicating through screens have caused passions to remain trapped behind the mask, and the daily occurrence in which we loudly sing as we cheer for our sports heroes seemed far away until recently. The security for athletes that their dreams and our wishes are achievable is more important now than ever. DDOR osiguranje is a proud partner of the Olympic team of Serbia, which follows brave athletes on the path – To all new victories.
