After the European Taekwondo Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria, five medals reached Croatia: three gold medals and two bronze medals.
In the window of the Taekwondo club Marjan of Split, the Croatian sports club that has won the most trophies, as many as four people will find their place.

Yesterday, a reception was held for Marjan members in Split. If anti-epidemiological measures are not taken, the situation will be even more serious.

Club members paid tribute to the golden girls, and about 20 of them lined up at Resnik Airport to light torches and cigarette cases to commemorate the great success. Someone chanted: “No one is like Marian from Split.”
He said: “I don’t know the result yet, although we are used to great things in the club. We want to get more medals and there will be a new game within a week. As far as the celebration is concerned, that’s it.” 21 years old Bruna Vuletic (Bruna Vuletic) has so far won the European gold medal for trainees, junior and senior.
“You know, this is not normal for us. We haven’t trained for a long time and we can’t wait to get back to the gym. Tomorrow we have already had two training sessions,” Bruna added.
It was difficult for Matea Jelić of Knin from Croatia to qualify for the Olympics. She defeated two great opponents in the European Championships: France’s Magda Wiet and Britain’s Lauren Williams.
“I have met them all the time. They are world-class girls. My heart is broken in Bulgaria, but I have to work harder. I am not satisfied with my fighting style,” Matea was only 18 years old. Said he won the European Championship and won his first major medal in 2016.
