(E) Sandra Bezic
 
 
 
For those not aware, one of the commentators on NBC during the Olympic 
Games is Sandra Bezic, a Croatian-Canadian. Here's a short bio from the 
nbc web site. John Kraljic 
 
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 
 
Sandra Bezic, a 1972 Olympian and former Canadian pairs champion, is as 
an NBC figure skating analyst for the 2002 Salt Lake Games. Bezic joined 
NBC Sports in 1990 as an analyst for its figure skating coverage. 
 
   NOW A SKATING CHOREOGRAPHER, she has designed programs for many top 
skaters, including Brian Boitano, Katarina Witt, Kristi Yamaguchi and 
Kurt Browning. 
       Bezic has served as the analyst on numerous NBC Sports' figure 
skating events, including four World Figure Skating Championships 
(1991-1993 and 1995) and the World Professional Figure Skating 
Championships from 1990-1995. 
 
       Bezic skated competitively with her brother, Val, from 1967 
through the mid-1970s. She and her brother won the Canadian pairs novice 
title in 1967 and the Canadian senior competition four straight times 
from 1970-1973. 
       Bezic has choreographed and/or produced more than 25 television 
specials in Canada and the United States, including the Emmy 
Award-wining "Carmen on Ice." 
       She won Gemini awards for producing Browning's "You Must Remember 
This" and Brian Orser's "Night Moves." Bezic also produced the North 
American Tour of "Stars on Ice" and is the author of "Passion to Skate: 
An Intimate View of Figure Skating." 
 
------------------------------------ 
 
I found a Canadian Government web site that lists that Sandra and her brother Val as Croatians. Actually they have a section entitled Croatians, check it out: 
 http://collections.ic.gc.ca/heirloom_series/volume7/countries/croatia.html 
Interestingly, our neighbors on the east side of Drina had one of their own write the information which included mention of chetnik war veterans. Maybe we can get a Croatian Canadian to do a more extensive and thorough write-up on the Croatian Canadian information. 
Svako dobro,
