/ Bosnia and Herzegovina

Olympic Committee of Bosnia and Herzegovina President Marijan Kvesić named the hosting of the Sarajevo & East Sarajevo Winter European Youth Olympic Festival in 2019 as his favourite sporting memory. And who could blame him?

The EYOF marked a historic moment for Bosnia and Herzegovina, illustrating a willingness on all sides to embrace peace and friendship through sport and to work together for a brighter future. The NOC and cities of Sarajevo and East Sarajevo were later awarded the coveted “Peace and Sport” Diplomatic Action of the Year award for their joint efforts in organizing the event.
