Samir Becic and the entire staff at Health Fitness Revolution wish to offer condolences to the family and colleagues of Mr. Željko Kopanja, an esteemed Bosnian journalist and the owner of Nezavisne Novine or “Independent Newspaper.”
Mr. Kopanja, who passed away on August 8th, is respected as one of the most honorable media figures from the Balkans. His fearless investigative reporting on war crimes earned him admiration throughout Europe, but in an assassination attempt back in 1999, he lost his legs. Luckily he survived to continue his mission with the Bosnian-based “Independent Newspaper.” There, he built a great team and a loyal audience.
At Health Fitness Revolution, we are humbled and grateful for the exposure Mr. Kopanja and his team gave to our cause in 2012 when we were in the beginning stages. His team granted Samir Becic a platform to discuss healthy lifestyle in the Balkans, and we would like to thank all of our loyal readers from that region who are still with us today.
Although Mr. Kopanja is no longer with us, the legacy of his work and bravery live on and continue to inspire those all over the world.
