On 23 September 2000, for the first time since its independence, Slovenia won a gold medal in the Olympic Games. The date is also the first day of the annual European Week of Sport. To celebrate the achievements of Slovenian athletes and the role that sports play in our everyday lives, the Slovenian parliament designated 23 September as a national holiday for the first time in June 2020.
