Tarragona, June 27, 2018 - The sixth day at the Mediterranean Games in Tarragona was marked by the shot-putter Stipe Žunić, winner of silver medal with the best 20.21 meters. Filip Mihaljević was sixth with 19.56.

The gold medal was won by Hamza Alić from Bosnia and Herzegovina with 20.43 meters and the bronze went to his fellow-countryman Mesud Pezić (19.82).
"I have a feeling that I have more lost gold than won silver, but I have to be satisfied because the conditions here were very bad", said Žunić after winning silver and returning from doping control.
We will have several Athletics hopes in the fight for medals. Andrea Ivančević entered the second in the Finals of Women’s 100m Hurdles and Ivona Lončarek as the seventh. On Friday, Martin Marković entered the Finals in Men’s Discus Throw, while Thursday brings the Finals in Women’s Discus Throw and the performance of our best athlete Sandra Perković.
Boxing heavyweighter Toni Filipi (up to 91 kg) secured a bronze medal, defeating Marko Dučić from Serbia by interrupting the fight in the second round. In the continuation of Boxing competitions at the Mediterranean Games, the draw did not go to Filipi’s favor because of the fact that on Friday he will fight against the French Omba Biongolo and, according to the current situation, for the gold medal in Heavyweight Filip will have to beat two European champions. On Thursday, our third boxer and ace will be in the ring – light-heavyweight boxer Leo Cvetković (up to 81kg), while his opponent in the Quarterfinals will be the Algerian Mohamed Houmbri.

She had a chance to enter the medal-winning area with repasage performance, but the French Gneto ruined her chance for it...
