1638 0

Zoran Terzic was waiting for this moment since 2002 when he came to lead the Serbian national team! It paid off since Terzic won many medals with this team. This result is one of the most important in his career!

 

It's hard to find words. We are happy and proud. It was our dream. I have been the coach since 2002. We saw Russia and the U.S. win golds at previous World Championships and thought it would be great if we could do it. This is the biggest success in the history of Serbia women's volleyball. When I took over we were ranked something like 100th in the world.“

I am very proud of this historic victory. We played good volleyball. It was amazing. They fought well until the end. I'm proud we came back. It was tough. To be the champions is our dream come true. We have some special energy and have played together for a long time,” says Maja Ognjenovic, the captain of the team.

The MVP of the World Champs Tijana Boskovic has also commented on this big success:

It was a long road but we made it to historical success. I am very proud of everybody. I am happy and honored to be named MVP of the World Championship. I could not have made it without the help of the team, staff and coaches. This award will give me big motivation for the future. We played as a team and supported each other in difficult moments.”

Serbia player Brankica Mihajlovic:

I'm extremely happy and proud. We played well from the beginning of the tournament. Italy was strong. We showed our mental strength to come back and win.”

The Serbian team defeated the Italian girls in the final of the World Champs!

#SuperFinalsBerlin M: Sokolov – “Is this dream come true? Absolutely“

Re: @Paolo
More titles He Win with SADA, and national team, so Bulgaria like a team is not very good like Brazil, as players and the club team SADA you know many years, with Leal in this team they don't have many competitors in South America. Only 1-2 Argentine teams like UPCN, Bolivar, but you know, they are not in the same level with SADA in good years...

In Europe, there is many good teams like Zenit Kazan, Lokomotiv Novosibirsk, Belgorod, Lube, Trento, Modena, and Polish team Reply
