    I don't think it's about a lack of athleticism. There are many sports where a specific kind of athleticism isn't needed. Genetically, we aren't that much different from Serbs and Croats, but they somehow produce great individual athletes consistently. Where's our great high jumper? Where's our great weightlifter? As someone said above, it's probably a combination of mentality and culture. We tend to produce young people that either pursue soccer or nothing else. As you said, with so many thousands of Bosnian Americans going to American high schools with their world class facilities, it's strange that we haven't produced one world class athlete, besides maybe Ibisevic (and that's a stretch there). There's something about us that prevents us from being better, but I don't think inherent genetic limitations is the reason. And then we produce someone with potential (Tuka), he doesn't produce when it matters the most. All the wins he had last year at track meets will be forgotten. You have to perform when it matters most.

    Look at Serbia, their women's volleyball team beat the United States, even though volleyball is played at every high school, every college in the United States, and the pool is much much larger than Serbia. But Serbia, due to their strong sports culture (particularly in team sports) can overcome the inherent disadvantages against much larger nations.

    This drives me crazy because we should have produced one world class athlete just randomly over time. But we can't even stumble on one.

    It's the complete lack of women in sports in Bosnia that is worrying. Serbia and especially Croatia obviously have had amazing female athletes over the years, Slovenia with Tina Maze, Montenegro with their handball team who finished 2nd last Olympics and were European champions in 2012, now Kosovo and their gold medalist Majlinda Kelmendi.

    It wont change when this current generation use all their free time on Facebook, Viber(or "vajber"), Instagram and trash reality/singing shows on television.

    I dont think it's wrong to say that Bosnians in general are more lazy than Serbs and Croats. Novak Djokovic and Luka Modric are products of hard work.

    I have no problem with that, personally I don't at all care for the olympics. Most sports are irrelevant(or hardly sports), the best players don't even show for the important sports like basketball or soccer.

    Yeah they are a lot more ambitious. How many times in this forum have we complained about potential of our soccer players and how they could move to much better clubs? Most times they just stay the same, satisfied with the little they accomplished.

    Mate, the thing is we arent even good at the "important sports" like football and basketball. Couldnt even qualify for a 24-team Euros tournament where a bunch of fishermen reached the last 8.

    All the more reason to invest more time and energy into it.

    Oh come on, Sudzuka, if we had a world class badminton player and she was hot, you'd wake up in the middle of the night to watch her matches. :p

    Niko preko ličnog rekorda ni rezultata koji ih je odveo na Igre


    Najviše nade polagali smo u Amela Tuku koji je u utrci na 800 metara u jednoj od tri polufinalne grupe bio četvrti sa vremenom 1:45.24. U kvalifikacijama je istrčao 1:45.47. Njegov najbolji rezultat sezone je i dalje 1:45.23, što je za skoro tri sekunde manje od njegovog najboljeg rezultata iz prošle godine koji je iznosio 1:42.51. Dakle, skoro tri sekunde. Za finale bi bilo dovoljno da je istrčao 1:44.64 što je za više od dvije sekunde sporije nego prošle godine.

    Bacač kugle Hamza Alić je u Rio stigao sa rezultatom sezone koji je iznosio 20,57 metara. U Riju je dobacio do 19,48 metara, što je bilo dovoljno za 26. mjesto od 34 takmičara. Rezulat sezone Kemala Mešića iznosio je 20,74 metara, a u Riju 18,84 metara, uz više od dva metra slabije on je bio 30. na kraju. Mesud Pezer je u Riju bacio hitac na dužinu od 19,55 metara (rezultat sezone 20,58 m), što je bilo dovoljno za 24. mjesto. Dakle, svi su barem za metar bili ispod rezultata sezone i skoro za dva metra od rezultata koji je bio potreban za finale, jer je 12 takmičara otišlo u finale, a 12. takmičar je imao rezultat 20,40 metara.

    Lucia Kimani je u ženskom maratonu sa vremenom 2:58:22 osvojila 116. mjesto na Olimpijskim igrama, a njen najbolji rezultat sezone iznosio je 2:40:20. Bila je za 18 minuta sporija.

    Damir Džumhur (76. ATP) i Mirza Bašić (154. ATP) zaustavljeni su u 1. kolu teniskog turnira. Džumhura je izbacio Izraelac Dudi Sela (65. igrač svijeta), a Bašić je ispao od Argentinca Juana Monaca (105. igrač svijeta). Naši teniseri su u ovoj godini pobjeđivali bolje rangirane tenisere od onih koji su ih savladali u Riju. Bašić je na Australian Openu pobijedio Robina Haasea, tada 64. igrača svijeta, a Džumhur u Monte Carlu Tomasa Berdycha koji je u tom trenutku bio sedmi igrač svijeta.

    Džudistkinja Larisa Cerić je u kategoriji +78 kg u prvoj borbi (osmina finala) ispala od Tunižanke Nihel Cheikh Rouhou koju je ranije ove godine savladala u Guadalajari.

    Tatjana Đekanović je u gađanju vazdušnom puškom sa 10 metara osvojila 35. mjesto rezultatom 410,8 bodova, a plasman na Olimpijske igre izborila je sa rezultatom 413,4 bodova.

    Amina Kajtaz je u utrci na 100 metara leptir u Riju u drugoj kvalifikacijskoj grupi osvojila četvrto mjesto ostvarivši vrijeme 1:01.67, što je za 46 stotinki lošije od vremena kojim je došla do Olimpijskih igara (1:01.21). Bila je 36. od 45 takmičarki.

    Mihajlo Čeprkalo postigao je 37. vrijeme u konkurenciji od 46 plivača u kvalifikacijama u utrci na 1.500 m slobodnim stilom. Sedamnaestogodišnji Banjalučanin dionicu je isplivao za 15:31.62, što je nešto više od pet sekundi slabiji rezultat od njegovog ličnog i rekorda Bosne i Hercegovine koji iznosi 15:26.22.
