On 19 March held State championship, took place in the south part of Bosnia and Herzegovina, more precisely in Čapljina. Isa Dukmenic student at International Relations and European studies on BURCH University won a golden medal, becoming a State Champion.
"It was a wonderful experience participating on this tournament, lot of good fighters showed their skills and lot of new connections and friends were made. I had a real struggle in Final fight where in all three rounds the outcome was unpredictable between me and my opponent. At the end of third round result was 8:8. When this happens fighters have a new round called Golden point in which whoever scores a point first wins. Luckily I was a bit quicker and more accurate then my opponent and made that last deciding point. It was truly a long and exhausting fight but all that disappears once you feel the golden medal on your chest. I believe that the next tournament is Open Federal championship, where I hope to firmly ground my tittle against even wider range of opponents as it is open for all competitors from neighbor countries. After that I am planing on participating in a number of international championship to try my luck there as well. I love how BURCH pays attention to it's students who practice sport, I had big support and it is a wonderful feeling to be a part of BURCH family and share this feeling with them, Thank you BURCH!!!".
