“So many emotions, I take them all with me and know that I share them with all those who accompanied me on my path.

“I thank my family, my wife Nadica and my children Filipo, Ana, Sofia, who were my support. I thank my father and my mother for allowing me to follow this dream. I thank the people for the passion they gave me… You were magnificent.

“I thank the Branchini family, without you I would never have done all of this. I thank all my coaches and directors for their faith in me. I would love to embrace you all…

“A wonderful chapter ends… I bring with me an incredible suitcase full of emotions… I am happy to have shared them with you.

": With all my heart, Goran."
