The Olympic Arch Feb 11, 2017
Favorite thing: The Olympic Arch (olimpijski slavoluk) is project and permanent exhibit in Borik Sports Hall aim to give tribute to all Olympic winners from Banja Luka. It placed above entrance to the floor adorned with Olympic arch. It was placed on 14th September 2001. This year is celebrated 15th anniversary of this project.

The initiative to build the Olympic arch came from handball workers Branko Jankovic, the designer of exhibit space was Darko Hrstic and presentation of characters of Olympians is made by Nenad Vojcic from Belgrade.

Lets meet Banja Luka Olympic champions, 8 of them:

1. Tomislav Knez - Rome 1960 football,

2. Abas Arslanagić - Munich 1972 handball,

3. Milorad Karalić - Munich 1972 handball,

4. Nebojša Popović - Munich 1972 handball,

5. Dobrivoje Selec - Munich 1972 handball,

6. Zlatan Arnautović - Los Angeles in 1984 handball,

7. Zdravko Rađenović - Los Angeles 1984 handball and

8. Anton Josipović - Los Angeles in 1984, boxing.

But wait, since Rio 2016 Banja Luka have new Olympic winner - Saša Čađo, women basketball team of Serbia, bronze. Marinko Umicević, Technical Director of the footwear factory ''Bema'' suggested that her name included in the Olympic arch.
