– I cannot feel my legs. You made me the happiest man on Earth. Long liveDubrovnik, said the best centre player in the world, Nikša Dobud.
– This is what every child dreams of when he takes on sport. It is well worth all the efforts, my dreams have come true, said Frano Vićan to the crowd. Elvis Fatović was obviously happy and excited.
Words of happiness and gratitude were spoken by each and every golden player from Jug. After the champagne, the festivity continued with popular scores sang by Jasmin Stavros.
