SFS Canada Hosts the Final Trojka iz Bloka of the Season 2017

PDF Print E-mail


The University of Toronto Mississauga campus was the place to be on Sunday, November 12th. Over 500 people, including 166 competitors, filled the gymnasium of the Athletics Building. After the great response from the first Trojka iz Bloka fundraiser held in Burlington this past April, word was out that this was an event not to be missed!

The competition was divided into two divisions: Children 11 and under, and Adults 12 and over. After a number of tiebreakers to determine the winners, 2 champions and 4 runners up were announced.

In the Adults Division, Jovan Milićević finished in first place, with Christopher Hilton finishing in second place and Luka Radić sealing third spot.

In the Children Division, Matea Bjelaković was the victor, and Pavle Jelić and Fernando Zing took second and third place respectively. In addition to basketball, musical entertainment was provided by Party Band and DJ Ekstra. For the half time intermission the folklore group, SKUD Oplenac, performed two suites.

Many of the dancers were on the court competing before they put on their folklore costumes. The intermission ended with the announcement of the winner of the raffle draw for 2 tickets to the upcoming Raptors vs Denver game at the ACC, which includes a post-game meet and greet with Nikola Jokic. The lucky winner was Oliver Lepki.

If an event is going to be a success it needs good leadership and Canada’s Trojka iz Bloka team is the best! Zoran Vukasović, Milan Azanjac, Zlatko Šarčević – Šarac, Jelka Garić, Nemanja Šalipur and Miloš Golić organized the event and led a whole team of volunteers, young and old. MCs Bojan Radulović and Milan Međo made sure the event ran smoothly from start to finish, while Sportska Škola Junak, operated by Zlatko, Sonja and Ozren Šarčević, helped organize the event and once again provided their students to be ball-people for the competition.

Basketball Club Troyka, too, stepped in to lend a hand.

And what better way to ensure an event will be a success than by starting it off with a prayer led by Father Jovan Marjanac. On a final note, there is a whole group of sponsors that must be thanked:
