Serbia honour rising stars, top players and coaches of 2016
News from the National Federations

Belgrade, Serbia, December 28, 2016. The Metropol hotel in Belgrade played host to the traditional New Year’s Cocktail Ceremony organised by the Volleyball Federation of Serbia, where the best individuals were presented with “Volleyball Connects” trophies for their achievements in 2016. The 2017 calendar produced by the Volleyball Federation of Serbia was promoted at the event as well, while the esteemed guests were able to relive some of the glorious moments from the past through a video from 1997 made for the popular Volleyball anthem (a song officially called “Volleyball Now”), which over the years has helped promote Volleyball across the Balkan country.

In the presence of a large number of guests, including Volleyball players, coaches, officials and media representatives, Mr Zoran Gajic, President of the Volleyball Federation of Serbia, delivered an opening speech. After that, he presented Mr Ivo Radakovic, Marketing Director of the “Vip mobile” company, with a special plaque of the Volleyball Federation of Serbia to celebrate 10 years of successful cooperation between the two organisations.



Prizes for the best coaches went to Zoran Terzic (senior women), Nikola Grbic (senior men), and Marijana Boricic (junior women). Mr Gajic personally handed over the trophies to Mr Terzic and Mrs Boricic, while Nikola Grbic, the new head coach of the Italian top team Calzedonia VERONA, was unable to attend due to his commitments in the Italian national league.

The trophy “Future belongs to them”, a prize for the best young prospects, went to Beach Volleyball players Tijana Basic and Irena Drobnjak, as well as to Stefan Skakic, Stefan Mitrovic, Jovana Kocic, and Boris Busa. Milena Matic was named the best female Beach Volleyball player of 2016, with Stefan Basta taking that same honour for men. Basic and Drobnjak claimed earlier this year a historic bronze medal for Serbia at the U18 European Championship in Brno, the first of any kind on the international stage for the Balkan country.



Tijana Boskovic was named the Best Serbian Female Volleyball Player and Marko Ivovic received the prize for the Best Serbian Male Volleyball Player of 2016.

“I am very happy for this award, especially because it came this year, when we achieved an incredible result at the Olympic Games in Rio,” Boskovic said.

“This year we won the gold medal in the World League, the first in our history. I am proud of that and this prize will surely be an additional reason for me to contribute even more in the future to the success of our national team,” said Marko Ivovic.
