Robert Šola is new Boris Hanžeković Memorial Meeting Director

The Management Board of the Dinamo-Zrinjevac Athletics Club appointed Robert Šola, Editor-in-Chief of the Sportske novosti daily sports newspaper, as Meeting Director of the Boris Hanžeković Memorial, the oldest sporting event in Croatia and one of the world’s best and most esteemed athletics meetings. Natko Bošnjak was appointed the Project Manager of the meeting.

The arrival of Robert Šola, who has, among other sports, also covered athletics in his career, provides the desired continuity, but also further enhancement of the event, while the Dinamo-Zrinjevac Athletics Club as organizer maintains the high organization standards and level of results that the Meeting has achieved. With the support of the City of Zagreb and its partners, its well-established organization and implementation team and associates, the Hanžeković Memorial remains an unavoidable stop for all top athletes and athletics fans.

The Hanžeković Memorial has been held uninterrupted since 1951 and it has followed the path from a duel between clubs to an elite meeting featuring the world’s best athletes, broadcast in over 100 countries. Last year, it became part of the World Continental Tour Gold series, which confirmed its status at the top of the world’s athletics.


The Zagreb Meeting, which marked its 70th anniversary on 12 May 2021, its 110m hurdles Boris Hanžeković Memorial Race and the Ivan Ivančić Memorial shot put event are looking forward to a period of new successes, memorable sports stories and results.
