I was playing waterpolo for 11 years in Serbia, in WC Partizan for 8 years, then I joined the WC Red Star for next 3 years. I won many tournaments with Partizan, we were state winners many years in a row and I must to say that period was the greatest period of my life while I was playing waterpolo. My teammate at that time was Filip Filipovic, Andrija Prlainovic and big opponent was Dusko Pijetlovic cause he was playing for WC Vojvodina. All of them are great fellas, cause this sport is teaching us only good things. Always it was great atmosphere during the training and so on. Even now in WC Dubai Camels it is really good atmosphere, great sessions, tournaments, I am happy to be part of it.
