Each of them was greeted by a cry: “Serbia, Serbia”!

The highest applause beside Boskovic was won by the team selector – Zoran Terzic.
Everyone sing the national anthem together! It was emotional and then the champions addressed the fans.
- Thanks for coming. I hope that next year we will all be here again to celebrate Olympic gold – said Stefana Veljkovic.
Tijana Boskovic, the best volleyball player of the championship, addressed the audience.
- I am very glad that for the third year in a row we can be with you. Your support was an additional motive for us to be even stronger!
Tiana’s speech was interrupted by shouts: “MVP, MVP”!
Team captains Maja Ognjenovic talked about – LOVE!
