We're such a great sport country.
I hope one of them make the Olympics this year...
We will be hosting the 2013 Junior Handball World Championships. Pretty cool, but I wish it was this summer so i could see a match.
They want to see if we can handle hosting a competition like this so they can set us up for the European tournament down the road once we improve and build better quality arenas.
Yeah that is definitely a possibility.
And we are going to build several new arenas around 5,000 capacity for each (one called Sport Centre Mostar ). Those arenas could help in a future Eurobasket bid or of the like...
Isn't Catic repping Germany anyway?
lol I knew of Felix Sturm (Adnan Catic) for a while and never knew he was bosnian til I went on his wikipedia to see his record
It's infinitely hard to succeed in boxing if your name has a Bosnian flag next to it. Sad but true. Just look at the way they allocate points when boxers from smaller countries fight boxers from Germany, the UK, US, etc. Boxing is one of the only sports that I don't mind if Bosnians play under a different national team.
Its true and who cares that he fights for Germany, everyone knows he's Bosnian and he always drapes himself with our flag.
Vitez, a grassy meadow. Tree downed.
true, the politics surrounding boxing are killing the sport and why everyone is turning towards MMA where its less bullshit and more fights
Does anyone know how come our league champion gets an automatic birth in the CL? Is it because all those times we have reached the final play-off for Euros/WC's, thus giving us a higher coefficeint?
OK, so none of you picke know about our handball league?
There is a 3 year coefficient for club handball, which basically works exactly like in football. NT games have no impact on this. The Bosnian league got an automatic entry for being ranked 14th there, although this season Bosnian clubs didn't do very well at all, so they might lose that spot.
Alright, thanks for the info man. It seems we have done well in the past. I think we have gotten like top four in the EHF Cup lie twice and Borac won the whole CL/were runner-up. But yeah we have been poor recently, we didn't win a single group match in the latest CL (but were very close on a couple occasions).
Here are the Bosnian clubs' achievemnets in Europe in our histroy:
EHF Champions League -
Borac Banja Luka: Champion (75/76), Runner-up (74/75)
EHF European Cup -
Borac Banja Luka: Champion (90/91)
Zeljeznicar: Runner-up (81/82)
EHF Cup Winners' Cup -
Zeljeznicar Nis: Runner-up (77/78)
Izvidac Ljubujski: Semi-finalist (04/05)
Bosna Sarajevo: Semi-finalist (06/07)
My bad, completely forgot it was in the opening post.
Nazif Gljiva ih bukvalno jebao.
So, our NT will he some preparation matches before the play-off with Germany for the 2013 WC qualifying. We play Italy and Montenegro on April 1st and 8th. We play ze Germans in June for both legs.
FT - Bosnia 46:30 Italy
We just crushed Italy in our preparation tournament. We also beat Montenegro 33:32. Good signs. Muhamed Toromanovic was our leading scorer with 8 goals. And did you guys know admission for the game was free? That was pretty cool and a nice gesture to the supporters and fans. Up next, Germany in the WC play-offs!!!
i agree, really great signs especially the win against Italy. it really gives you momentum knowing you beat a team by 16 in HANDBALL. it was a high scoring game and Bosna came out on top.
Great signs. Maybe we cause a shock and upset Germany?
That would be so EPIC.
felix sturm, adnan catic, is fighting tonight... anyone gnna watch
