Los Angeles Kings star shares prize with judoka Urska Zolnir

Sports' Writers Association of Slovenia (DŠNS) selected the nation's best male and female athletes: Los Angeles Kings' Anze Kopitar and Olympic gold medal winning judoka Urška Žolnir were the winners.
The 25-year-old Kopitar, who was a key member of the Stanley Cup-winning Los Angeles Kings outfit earlier in the year, currently with Mora IK of the Swedish Allsvenskan, beat out hammer thrower Primož Kozmus, a silver medalist at the London Olympics, in the voting 261 to 182 to become the first ever athlete in a team sport to win the award.
Shooter Rajmond Debevec, who won bronze in London, came in third with 55 votes.
