Serbia loses bronze, as Spain reaches gold

Serbia’s National team wasn’t able to recover from their first defeat on the competition. Instead, they lost a chance to win the European bronze, and ended up fourth.

The players of Aleksandar Đorđević lost to France, by 81:86. A lack of initiative and precision, for a less then glorious ending of the Championship. Serbia is now left to compete in one of the qualifying tournaments, for another chance to reach Rio.

Sale, srećan rođendan!

Srbija dočekala šampione! / Serbia welcomes the World Champions

Nakon rekordnog osvajanja Svetskog prvenstva u Kazanju, zlatni srpski vaterpolisti su večeras dobili i zasluženi doček. Hiljade građana iz zemlje i regiona, okupila se ispred platoa Narodne Skupštine, kako bi pozdravila šampione. Na pozornicu su se redom peli članovi stručnog štaba, te srpski reprezentativci, zahvaljujući se na podršci, uz želju da svi zajedno oborimo rekorde u gledanosti vaterpolo mečeva, na predstojećem Evropskom prvenstvu. U čast promocije šampionata, prikazana je i zvanična maskota takmičenja.

Kao i uvek, Delfini su bili skromni, učtivi i veseli, podsećajući nas na činjenicu da je pravo zadovoljstvo, pratiti ih u bazenu i van njega.


After a record breaking victory at the Water polo World Championship in Kazan, the golden Dolphins have been welcomed in front of the National Parliament building, by thousands of people from the entire region. The stage was taken by the coaching staff and all of the team members, thanking the crowd for its support. The champions have also expressed their desire to break the viewing records at the upcoming European championship in Belgrade. The official competition mascot was also presented, to help promote the continental competition.

As always, the team members were humble, gracious and positive. Reminding us, once again, why it is such a pleasure to watch them on and off court. Or in this case, pool.

Sampdoria – Vojvodina (0-4)!

Nakon prvog dela dvomeča u Ligi Evrope između Sampdorije i Vojvodine, rezultat je 4-0 u korist srpskog kluba!

Tim Zlatomira Zagorčića ostvario je jednu od najznačajnijih pobeda u novijoj klupskoj istoriji, ostvarivši izuzetno ubedljivu pobedu protiv favorizovanog protivnika. Njihova složna igra u napadu i snažna odbrana, omogućili su ovaj izuzetni rezultat. Nakon 94 minuta igre, “Lale” su ubeležile četiri pogotka, i to:

Mirko Ivanić u 4. minutu, Aleksandar Stanisavljević u 49. minutu, i briljantni Ognjen Ožegović u 58., i 91. minutu, u okviru sudijske nadoknade. Poslednjim, zaista veoma lepim golom, samo je “zacementirao” prednost svoje ekipe, ostavljajući neznatne šanse italijanima za prolazak dalje. Revanš meč se očekuje naredne subote, na stadionu “Karađorđe”, a publiku svakako očekuje nezapamćeni spektakl.


After the first leg of the Europa League match between Sampdoria, as the host, and Vojvodina, the result is 0-4 in favor of the Serbian team!

The players of Zlatomir Zagorčić have managed to write in one of the most important victories in the recent club history, against the Italians, that were considered as strong favorites. After 94 minutes of play, the goal scorers were Mirko Ivanić (4′), Aleksandar Stanisavljević (49′), and the brilliant Ognjen Ožegović, (58′, 91′).

The rematch is expected to be played next weekend, most likely on Saturday, at the “Karađorđe” stadium. The crowd is in its full right to expect a show to remember.
