In the period between July 1st and July 12th, 2009, the Universiade 2009 was held in Serbia. This was the biggest sports event ever held in our country. One year before, I was appointed as the President of the Organizing Committee of this event. In the preparation period, we managed to reduce the budget of the event, from €240 to €75 million. Although it was in terms of budget a “poor” Universiade, Serbia and Belgrade set the highest standards for organization of sports events. More about the achievements and the event itself can be seen here.
