Spanish basketball player Nikola Mirotic said that he dedicated a part of the bronze medal won at the Olympic Games to Montenegro.

In the match for third place, Spain beat Australia with the 89:88 score after a great struggle.

“I dedicate the medal to my family in Montenegro, as well as to everyone who supported me when I made the difficult decision to play for Spain. I hope they will understand the decision because I provided constant participation at major sports events. In addition, I am sure that Montenegro, starting from the next European Championship, will participate at major sports tournaments. Montenegro has a good team and a new coach”, Mirotic told Dnevne Novine newspaper.

Last year, as a member of Spanish national team, Mirotic won the Eurobasket.
