• Serbian player who lost leg to resume career


    BELGRADE: Serbian international basketball player Natasa Kovacevic is set to make her comeback on Wednesday with Red Star Belgrade, 26 months after a traffic accident in which she lost her left leg, the club said. Kovacevic also awaits the arrival of a special prosthesis that will facilitate the continuation of her professional activities, spokesman Igor Vujicin added. Kovacevic would not comment until returning to competition in Wednesday’s match that starts at 7:00pm local time (1800 GMT), he said. The 21-year-old signed a contract with the Serbian top-flight side earlier this month. She would become the first disabled European player to play in a professional team.
