“To me, the Future of Us is bright simply because through Sport, we play, bond and live better together.”

 

Aleksandar Đurić was born in Bosnia, a country once part of the former Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. He overcame a difficult childhood to become a junior canoeing champion. Against the backdrop of the Bosnian War that raged in his homeland, Aleksandar made an unlikely appearance at the 1992 Olympic Games. A nomadic career in football followed, before he finally found his feet and home – in Singapore – where he found love, built his family, and made his name, going on to represent the national team over 50 times.
