Iran continuing to enjoy fruits
of Cevetkovic’s work
With Iran enjoying their first-ever participation in the FIVB World
League, one of the main architects of that success is no longer
involved with volleyball in the Islamic Republic, but during his time
there, there is little doubt that he helped lay the foundations for their
current success.
The crowning glory came at the Mexico 2007 World U19 Boys’
World Championship, when as coach he guided the team to an
unprecedented gold medal. He also enjoyed a second-place finish in
the 2009 edition and an Asian Youth Championship win in 2008, as
well as two lots of silver from other continental competitions.
Jovica Cevetkovic was no stranger to success in Iran
