The former shooter Miho Boskovic said goodbye to a great career

After the end of last season, Miho Boskovic, a Croatian Water Polo player, left Primorje, Rijeka to return with his family to Dubrovnik. Many expected a new deal somewhere for the upcoming season but instead the 33-year old announced his retirement in order to become a music teacher. With his degree from the Academy of Music Boskovic will start working as a professor of music education at the local Gymnasium High School in Dubrovnik.


Miho Boskovic started playing at local club Cavtat before moving to nearby Jug Dubrovnik. After a stint with Jadran Split (2001-2004) the high-scoring striker started a period with Jug Dubrovnik that marked his career. From 2004 through 2010 he was part of the team winning six Croatian national titles, the LEN Euro League in 2006 at home and one European Super Cup. In 2010 he moved to Budapest to play for Vasas with whom he reached the Champions League Final Four in Oradea in 2012 while also becoming Hungarian national water polo champion that season. The following year he returned to Dubrovnik, only to make one final trip, up north to Rijeka last season playing for Primorje.

Won it all internationally

On the international stage,  Miho Boskovic won it all, capturing precisely ten medals of which four were gold: the 2007 World Championships, 2010 European Championships, the 2012 FINA World League and of course the London Olympic Games. In that year the Croatian Water Polo shooter was named European Player of the Year by LEN. Boskovic retired internationally in January of last year before calling it quits a year and a half later.
