September 5, 2018

TEHRAN – Three-time Olympic medal winner Aleksandar Ciric has shown interest in continuing to work with Iran national water polo team as a coach.

Under guidance of the 40-year-old coach, Iran national water polo team claimed a medal after 44 years.

Team Melli defeated China 16-15 on penalty shootout (8-8 in the regular time) at the GBK - Aquatic Center in Jakarta, Indonesia on Saturday to win a bronze medal.

“I want to continue my work as Iran coach. First, I need to rest after months of hard work. Then I will talk to the Iran Swimming Federation president Mohsen Rezvani,” Ciric said.

Ciric is a Serbian water polo player who played for two Olympic bronze medal squads, one for FR Yugoslavia at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, the other for Serbia at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, and one Olympic silver medal squad for Serbia and Montenegro at the 2004 Olympics in Athens.
