Aleksandar Sapic quits water polo
Short interview with Aleksandar Sapic and some highlights...
Hello Aleksandar, the news of your withdrawal us by surprise, just
31 years with the close Water polo. When did you make this difficult
Aleksandar Sapic - I took this decision last year in October, when I
decided to stop playing for national team and I realized that I had
no more motivation, and having no motivation makes difficult to play
at high levels.
What have you told to the closest people in your life? Surprise?
Have they had any attempts to get you back in water polo?
Aleksandar Sapic - Few people have heard about this decision at the
beginning and have understood and have not tried to make me go back,
because they know that when I take a decision I do not change
Many have not understood, however, the fact that I just stop being
athlete. They will have to get used to it.
I started playing water polo to compete, to win and have fun, having
no fun to me is useless.
Is there the possibility of a rethink?
Aleksandar Sapic - No. I am a serious man, and when I say something serious there is no possibility of rethinking.
What will you do now in your life?
Aleksandar Sapic - I invested money in some businesses earlier. For now I will devote myself to it.
Aleksandar Sapic played 377 games for the team of Yugoslavia, Serbia & Montenegro, and Serbia and scored 953 goals, which is the absolute record of all time. However, he left unfulfilled dream to get to the remarkable figure of 1000 goals in the state team, which would probably have managed to achieve if he had continued to play a few more years.
